The Editor 

A new 1 multi-window editor with 
bookmarks, mouse Work-marking, 
macros, complete window flexibility 
[ilU hiding multi-views on one file), 
extensive user configuration and rull 
integration with [he other Devpac 
programs, The editor makes useot 
\\, i kbenth 2 or 1-3 automatically. 

The Assembler 

unproved and extended,, the Devpac 3 
assembler is now at least 40% fester than 
its predecessor (without pre-49semHy>, 
supports the full GBOxQ range of proces- 
sors including the maths co-processoi I 
and lias a tremendous number of 

. [tchabte optimisations. With the 
ability to pre-asscmble files for indusnm. 
it can now el.iim to be the fa* I

A4000 - more 
amazing details 



SINCE the exclusive report in our 
October issue outlining Com- 
modore's plans to launch a new top- 
end Amiga during the next year, fur- 
ther details about its specifications 
have been gathered. 

The machine will be named the 
Amiga 4000 and will be fitted with a 
68040 processor, enabling the com- 
puter to run up to five times faster 
than the current dfiOSQ-based A3000. 

II will have multi-monitor support 
and is claimed so have ■ 24-bit graph- 
ics board as standard, with 16-bit 



By John Butters 

sound. The CD-ROM drive which has 
recently been rumoured for the 
A4000 appears not to have been 

included. 

Experts now believe that a SCSI IE 
interface wiil be Included to enable 
information to be transferred at up to 
ten megabytes per second to and 
from hard drives. 

Technology included in the "Super 
Amiga" is likely to mean that it wiil 



sell for between £4,000 and £5,000, 
and will he aimed at high-end graph- 
ics applications such as broadcasting, 
multimedia and presentations. 

The A40O0 could also be employed 
comfortably for computer-aided 
design or desktop publishing work, 
where it would operate faster than 
the industry-standard Apple 
Macintosh. Commodore refused to 
talk about the A40O0's details, simply 
commenting: "We haven't got a 
release date for that machine, either 
in the UK or US." 



CDTV linked with Amiga 



C s Commodore 



[N A surprise marketing move, Commodore have backed 
down on their refusal to link the CDTV with the Amiga, 
the machine at the centre of the player. 

It follows several months of the manufacturer going 
oul of their way to distance CDTV from computers. They 
maintain that this was needed to attract people who 
would not consider buying a conventional computer. 

CDTV, they said, was new ^^^^^^^^^^^ 
technology because it could 
show text and music from 
compact discs. None of the 
firm's advertising mentioned 
the word computer and stores 
selling the player were forced 
to display it at least four feet 
away from computers. 

Latest press and television 
advertising labels the machine 
Amiga CDTV, which one mar- 
keting expert said was needed 
because of "difficulties in 
explaining the multimedia 
concept and the undeniable 
cachet of the market-leading 
Amiga brand". It continues to 




(CDTV 



Tft* CPTT - wrry, Ik* Anij* t It 1 1 



be badged simply CDTV. Commodore's Andrew Bail said: 

"It seemed sensible to link CDTV with one of the 

strongest names in home entertainment. 
"CDTV was always going to be launched in several 

stages - its potential Is far greater than any games playing 

machine." 

He added that the firm have spent money educating 
people about CDTV's abilities. 
and thought that recent promo- 
tions on Radio 1 and coverage on 
BBC television's Tvttiorr&w's 
World programme had helped the 
campaign. 

By mid-December Commodore 
had sold JMXlfl machines through 
to consumers and the company 
expects total UK sales to stand at 
30,000 by the end of the 
Christmas selling period. 

Meanwhile, two more High 
Street chains have taken the 
machine on hoard. Dixons and 
Comet are to stock it at more 
than 30 stores each and It is to 
enter about 100 independents.

Superbase 4 

RIGHTS to top Amiga database 
Superbase 4 have been sold to an 
American software house only 
months after Software Publishes 
Corpora lion took over its developer 
Precision Software. 

California-based Oxxi will handle 
ail support and updates for the pack- 
age, and operate technical support 
and distribution from Precision 
Software's old UK office. Other Oxxi 
package; are also available from the 
building, 

SPC's Irfan Halim: "The sale of this 
division of Precision Software is con- 
sistent with our objectives, stated at 
the time of the acquisition We 
Intend to invest in the Superbase 
product line for Windows and build 
on the product's leading position in 
the GUI relational database market. 

"Precision's Commodore and Atari 
products clearly do not fit in with our 
locus on PC application-based soft- 
ware," he added. 

OkxI can be contacted on 081-330 
691 1 but the firm are looking for new 
premises and 40 this Is expected to 
change. 



Swapping OS 

A BOARD which will enable Amiga 
owners to swap between different 
versions of the computer's operating 
system is now being imported into 
the UK by Aquarian Pf> (0703 
685006). 

Supplied without ROMs, MultiStart 
II can switch between Workbench 
1.2, 1.3 and 2 through keyboard com- 
mands which reset the Amiga and 
force it to progress to the next ROM 
plugged In to the board. 

Complete with an easy-to-undcr- 
stand manual It costs £39.99. ROMs 
CM* between £36 and £48 each and 
are available from the firm. 



Amiga besi buy 

TESTS by consumer magazine 
Which? found the Amiga to be the 
best buy for games players, giving 
the machine a boost during the run- 
up to Christmas, 

Pive non-PC compatibles and 
four PC compatibles were examined 
by the magazine and while each 
had selling points, the Amiga was 
found to have the edge in terms of 
cost and games software avail ability. 

Ihe machine was criticised, how- 
ever, for its user interface and disk 
drives. The Apple Macintosh Classic 
was awarded best overall buy.

Maths fo be played with 

A NEW maths adventure program tor the Amiga enables children aged between 
six and 14 to revise and check their progress in National Cuniculum maths in a 
fun way. 

Using a series of four games, questions are asked on a wide range of maths 
lopics with correct replies taking the pupil from the land of the cave men to 
being tasked with saving a city from destruction by unknown creatures. 

Topics covered in Kosmos Software's (0525$ 3942) Maths Adventure include 
multiplication, addition, subtraction, division, fractions and decimals. 
Alternatively, everyday use of the subject can be covered in money problems, 
shape and space, or weights and measures. 

Each section can he specifically asked for, allowing students to practise indi- 
vidual sections of the curriculum with which they have difficulty. There are four 
difficulty levels, adjusted automatically to suit the child's ability. 

[hiring the exercises, the computer keeps track of a pupil's progress and if 
mistakes are made the correct answers are displayed onscreen, Records of perfor- 
mance are kept for each topic and these can be examined or printed as hard 
copy at any time. 

Price; £25.99.

Tornado goes 3D 



BUDDING fighter pilots will soon be 
able to get behind the controls of 
ProFligbt 2, the latest version of the 
Tornado flight simulator from HiSofi 
(0525 718181). 

The main addition will be 
enhanced gameplay, although the 
firm would like to maintain Profllghl 
Z's reputation as a serious program. 
This is achieved with 31> effects, mov- 



ing objects and intelligent enemy jets 
which will engage in dogfights. 

Scenery will be improved and the 
programmers are hoping to add run- 
way lighting and different enemy air- 
craft types. Company boss David 
link says it will take features from 
other military simulators and beat 
them, Upgrades will be available bui

PUBLIC domain and shareware disks are to 
become more freely available following a 

derision by more than 30 libraries to agree 
to share all releases with each other as soon 
u they become available. The deal came at a 
rivrnt conference called by I>erek Meakin, 
chairman of Kuropress Publications, pub- 
lisher of Amiga * 'nmputiitg and its sister mag- 
azine Shareware Shopper. 

He explained: "One of the main reasons 
we held the conference was because of the 
acute problems Shareware Shopper readers 
said they were facing in obtaining disks 
reviewed In the magazine." 

The industry-proposed solution will 
involve all-formats library Advantage dupli- 
cating all disks reviewed in the shareware 
maga2ine and making them available to 
other libraries advertising in that month's 
Issue- 
Advantage live at 56 Bath Road,

tacted by phone on 0242 224340.

modes, colour cycling, full-screen overlay 
and an increase from double buffer to six 
buffer*. New modes are 24-bit look-up, 15-bit 
true colour. 8-bit true colour and 8-bit 
pseudo colour, 

"The Harlequin* represents the most 
exciting advance for the Amiga in profes- 
sional video since Newtek announced the 
Video Toaster," commented Amiga Centre 
Scotland's Martin Lowe. 

"The Harlequin* provides broadcasters 
with features not found on any other PC 
platform, It offers a challenge to software 
developers to make full use of its additional 
functionality," he added. 

At the time of going to press Its price 
remained to be fixed, taut the firm have 
pledged to offer an opportunity to upgrade 
to users of the earlier version. 



40MHz planned 
for 040 

AN AMERICAN hardware manufacturer is set 
to produce 68040 accelerator cards for the 
A20Q0 and A3Q00 which are designed to run 
at 40MHz when chips become available. 

The first SupraTurbo 68040 boards will 
ran at 25MHa, support 64 megabytes of RAM 
and have a 4 k data cache. 

Supra expect to have the product available 
for both machines early this year. Supplied 
with four megabytes of memory, it should 
sell in Germany for DM 2,800 (about £965).

Graphits standard 
proposed 

AT a recent meeting between 
developers In America, two lead- 
ing hardware manufacturers 
joined forces to propose a new 
standard in Amiga graphics, to be 
called Standard Amiga Graphics 
Kxtension. 

SAGE, established by Pro- 
gressive Peripherals and Software 
and Digital Mlcronics, Is 
described as providing a last and 
efficient method for Amiga soft- 
ware developers to support all 
Texas Instruments processor 
boards 

PF&S say that while many firms 
were enthusiastic about SAGE, no 
funis have so far committed them- 
selves to use it and say it Is basi- 
cally an "operaHnff system within 
an operating system" . 



Budget genlock 
launched 

AMIGA users are soon to be offered a 
new budget-priced genlock called 
Microgen from Power Computing 
(0234 843383). 

A variety of fades are controlled 
through hardware and an on/off 
switch allows the user to swap to 
computer operation without the need 
to disconnect the genlock- 
It can be used with composite 
monitors and has an RGB though 
port. Among its features are Key 
Invert, to enable special effects to be 
created "on the. fly", without the user 
having to go through complex proce- 
dure 

Custom circuitry ensures that the 
Amiga will not crash and its low 
power design means it does not need 
its own external power.

II you feel left out of 
the 24-bit revolution 
by reason of bud- 
getary constraints, the 
prospect of a pseudo-24- 
bit add-on for less than 
the price of a decent VCR 
may be hard to resist. HAM-t, covered In Our July 1 991 
usue, was the first of such devices, but despite its 
impressive power-to-price ratio, it failed to make the 
impact its launch had promised. The newest contender, 
DgitsI Creation*' DOV, looks set to enjoy greater suc- 



cess. DCTV stands 
Digital Composite 
Television, and 

therein lies the unit's 
idiosyncracy. The out- 
put from DCTV is in 
composite video 
form, so its image's aren't displayed as sharp or detailed 
as a component RGB image. To view the DCTV screen, 
you must switch your monitor to CVBS input. 

Initially, when the unit is first plugged in, this can be 
a bit off -putting because if you've been used to sharp 






RGB images, 
you can feel a bit 

deflated by the comparatively fuzzy CVBS "telly" pic- 
tures you will see on your 1084 or CM8833, For video 
enthusiasts, however, this should not be a cauie for 
alarm, ai DCTV is actually outputUhg a video-legal sig- 
nal of the kind they would expect to see on tape, 

DCTV, just like HAM-E, comes in the form of an 
external bo» you connect between the Amiga and your

monitor- When physical installation is complete, taking 
no more than three minutes, installing the software art 
your hard disk Is a breeze, aid DCTVs paint/digitiser 
package is up and running. 

There's no need to open your Amiga - all the user 
need do with DCTV is twiddle the Pixel Adjust knob 
until the unit is property calibrated to the signals being 
output by the Amiga's video chips. 

At this point, DCTV begins to show its superiority 
over HAM-E. The tatter's bundled paint package, 
though free, was universally received as a disappoint- 
ment , DCTV's software rests comfortably at the oppo- 
site pole, being easy to use, smooth in operation on 
even an unaccepted A500, and offering many pow- 
erful features. 

In one powerful package, Digital Creations have 
crammed in a fully specified paint package, digitising 
software complete with image processing controls, 
and a powerful conversion utility. It is possible, there- 
fore, to import an image from a camera or VCR, apply 
the processing tools, touch it up in Paint mode, then 
convert the result to any Amiga video mode you 

please. 

As DCTV uses a 24-bit palette, it is also possible to 
save images in 24-bit IFF format which, though usu- 
ally 1Mb or greater In size, are ideal for use in DTP 
packages and the like. DCTV's propriety Display and 
Raw formats produce files of a much smaller size, but 
these can only be property viewed with the DCTV 
hardware attached, and appear as horribly fudged 
1 (^colour images in any other Amiga package which 
doesn't as yet support the format. 




Multiple formats 

Two standalone utilities are provided with the four 
DCTV software disks to make this sort of to-and-fro 
operation easier on the user. Not to be confused with 
the conversion options available from within the paint 
package, the extra utilities enable the user to use 
images generated in other packages with DCTV 

The first is iFftoOCTV. Not only will it handle all 
standard IFFs up to full 24-bil files, it will also convert 
Turbo Silver RGBS and SculptiD compressed files, 
and offers the user a range of options on the parame- 
ters of the output file. 

The second, 54DtolLBM, is used when dealing with 
Sculpt4D's component 24-bit images, which are 
saved by Sculpt as separate red, green, and blue files. 
S4DtolLBM grabs the three files and combines them 
in a standard 24-bit IFF which DCTV can import and 
display As with IFFtoDCTV, the user can specify vari 
ous parameters for the resulting image. 

So much for DCTV's communication skills. They 
would be of little use if the paint software was of infe- 
rior quality. Happily that is not the case. DCTV's paint 
package is both powerful and friendly. 

There are three options once DCTV has kicked in - 
Paint, Convert, and Digitise. The first to fall prey to 



Qrrrtrate

eager mouse clicks is 
bound to be Digitise, so 
let's start there. 

The on-board digit iser 
would appear a little dis- 
appointing at first sight, 
it has no instant snap- 
shot facility and must 
take Its images from a 
still source, either a cam- 
era pointed at a station- 
ary object, or a VCR on 
pause. Having used it for 
a while, though, I found 
it a bit of a cracker, For a 
start. Its inclusion puts 

DCTV far ahead of HAM-E, as the latter has no built- 
in digltiser. The biggest surprise, however, was the 
quality of grabs one could garner from even a fairly 
poor VCR, 

I tried it first with a NICAM 5-VHS machine sport- 
ing a high-quality pause feature, and the results were 
as good as I'd expected. Next, though, I gave the 
unit a bash on my ratty 
old VCR at home - one of 
those adept at making a 
paused picture look like a 
snowstorm - and DCTV 
made some pretty good 
attempts at grabbing 
what were rather indis- 
tinct Images. 

Once a frame has been 
Imported, the digitise sec- 
tion has a selection of 
tools with which to pro- 
cess it. The user can 
sharpen the image, adjust 
the red, green, or blue 
components, or alter the 
picture's chrominance 
(colour level) and lumi- 
nance (brightness). The 
latter pair are complemented by tint and contrast 
controls, rounding off an extremely useful and easy 
to use set of sliders. 

The original image is stored in a buffer ready to be 
restored if you make an almighty mess of things, and 
When you're happy with the alterations, clicking on 
Commit will permanently alter the data. You're now 
ready to save the frame or shove it off to the paint 
section for touching up. 

Here lies DCTV's heart and soul, and as a paint 
package there is little to fault it on Operations are 
split into sin main sections - Fill, Brush, Stencil,

Gradient, Color and Wells - each of which can be 
accessed no matter where in the package the user is 
currently working, 

The Fill section offers four main types of tills and a 
host of variations on each, The gradient fill alone has 
eight different techniques to choose from, ranging 
from straightforward horirontal gradients to the quite 
weird looking spiral fill. 

As the unit is displaying the gradients In composite 
video, they tan look lets smooth than a £1,500 24-bit 
card, but the results are still immeasurably better 
than standard Amiga displays, including even the 
best HAM picture. 

A surprising extra is the warp fill, which wraps the 
currently active dip (brush) around either a cylinder 
or a sphere. Not as powerful as C2's Imagic software, 
perhaps, but a lovely touch in a bundled paint pack- 
age for a peripheral in this price bracket, 

DCTVs brush se<lion is where a lot of the action 
takes place in paint mode. Here the user chooses with

The effects available are, again, surpnsmgly com- 
plete In a free package. There are nine in total, any 
one of which can be applied with brushes of twenty 
different sizes. Control of paint flow b available from 
1 to 1 00 per tent, and even the brush's X/Y ratio can 
be jet manually. 

Of the effects, Airbrush, Blend, Smooth, and Shade 
will be most familiar to Amiga owners, even if the 
quality of painting they can produce is not, but 
Rubthru and Water will he new to most. Rubthru 
enables the user to rub away part of the current 
image so that the picture held in the spare page 
shows through- If used with a low flow setting and a 
carefully planned spare page, Rubthru can produce 
excellent effects. 

Faces appearing through the mist pictures lading 
gently into one another, and even video effects can 
be rendered in this fashion. If, for example, the user 
enables Rubthru it a flow setting of 20 per cent, and 
uses lull screen box fills, the spare page can be made 
to fade in over a number of frames, and the sequence 
saved to tape as a link in a video presentation. 

True, the effect could be produced on a presenta- 
tion package with a lot less hassle, but DCTV offers a 
much higher quality true video effect when used in 
this manner. 






colours- The results are ideal 
for pastoral scenes and other 
soft-Hocus painting, such as 
waterfalls and the like. 

Overall, the brush section is 
as comprehensive as any of the 
24-bit paint packages we've 
seen, with the possible excep- 
tion ol TV Paint, and oilers 
options enough to satisfy any 
owner. 

The remaining features - 
Stencil, Colour and Wells - are 
a little less exciting, but they all 
continue DCTVs theme of 
completeness and attention to 
detail. Stencil, tor example, has 
a "colour closeness" option 
which enables the setting of a 
mask colour within definable 
tolerances, 

This means you can choose 
a low setting and the mask will 
include all colours within, say, 
33 per cent of the colour you 
ipecified. If you're working 
against a background of a gra- 
dient fill, you can thus choose 



Clever custom format!

DCTVs 

Image and save it as a 24-bit Tile, it can b. ,. - - 

space The same image saved In DCTVs display format will occupy only Mk 
or so because It Is a 16-colour IFf with one Ingenious difference 

When saved, the top left hand corner of a DCTV image contains compos- 
ite video wave Information which, when deciphered by the hardware, pro- 
vides the information needed by the little black box to display its own much 
more colourful pictures. This means you must never paint over the top left 
hand corner of the screen when messing about with DCTV .mages In 
another package, but the restriction b hardly worth talking about when the 

advantages are weighed up. ., m , iMi 

Take the pmcess of creating a couple of dozen ray traced 24-bit .mages 
using Imagine or Sculpt 4D (both of which now support DCTV). To animate 
the sequence, you d normally need either a frame ^« «Jj- " 
Amiga with many megabytes ol RAM. With DCTV attached, the 24-b.l files 
can be loaded one at a time and saved in DCTV display format, then loaded 
into DPaint 3 to be tacked together as an animation. 

The finished product, when played through DCTV, will appear in Its orij 
nal form and can be saved to tape In real time as a continuous composite 
video signal The process can be a lengthy one, but It negates the need tor 
lots of RAM, and cuts out the expensive video recorder altogether The 
advantages to the semjpro or vfcfeo eolhustat are that DCTV thus bnngs 



Unique results 



The Water tool is less spectacular, but capable of 
results none of the other brushes could produce It's 

designed to *ork in the same way as a water-colour 
artist's brush works, in that it "holds" a certain 
amount of paint which depletes as you brush across 

the canvas. 

Depending on the flow setting, this will 
happen faster or slower, 
but the paint will always 
blend with what- 
ever colour ft is 
applied over, ]ust as with water- 




to mask in a picture gradually. 

The Colour section gives the user control over the 
colour chosen and offers four ways ot defining new 
colours. There's RGB, CMY (handy for anything you 
might want to print to paper), HLS, and HW, so no 
matter what equipment your final picture is to be 
output to, you should find a colour standard to fit 
your requirements. 
'- The Wells section is 

a simple colour choosing 
screen, but has the now obliga- 
tory mining area for the user to 
xperiment on new colour mixes. 
The miner defaults to a solid colour air- 
brush which takes its parameters from 



3 

a. 
I

the normal brush size and flow settings, so it's fairly 

easy to use. 

I lor one remain unconvinced how useful such 
mixers are, as most computer artists aren't converts 
[torn canvas, but it has been included because DCTV 
includes just about everything else- 

Co nclusion 

DCTV otters the best chance many video enthusiasts 
will have of jumping on the 24-bit bandwagon, and is 
the closest anyone equipped with a wallet ol normal 
proportions will come to his or her own video paint- 
box system. With its digitising option and excellent 
software, it is a clear winner over HAM-E, and comes 
close to being the most amenable pieces of equipment 

I've ever used. 

The only problem DCTV might encounter is that its 
strength could be its main weakness on a first viewing, 
due to its reliance on a CVBS display which might look 
a bit fuzzy to users of sharp RGB monitors. On good 
monitors, even in composite mode, this is less restrict- 
ing, but on one old 10&4 l tried it on, the fulness 
and flickering made my eyes water. 

Apart from this, and as long as the niche market it 
aims for actually exists (one step forward all you video 
enthusiasts and small-scale producers), DCTV should 
jell like hot potatoes in a Russian bread queue,

Ai Power, we wantto tell you just where you can stick your disks 

and worries- In fact we will show you. The slot in this picture 

Del orgs to our PC88Q8, the first intelligent disk drive. Insert a disk, 

Now you can back up at lightning speeds using the inbuilt Blitz 
A-^ige hardware*, with free software, (even if the disk is Atari or 
PC and if your computer has a virus the PC88GB will stop it being 
written to the bootblockof any of yourdrives, though you can still 
save files as normal, 

Ahenyoudo not want these features, switch them off and the 
P C88QB will sit quietly, without clicking, pretending to be simply 
sxtra drive. 

The PC880B, the only drive to introduce Blitz Amiga, the Power 
anti-clickdeviceand to combat viruses, is only available direct 

from Power, priced at just £69 95 

We have noticed howpric-ey unintelligent drivesare. Perhaps, it's 
your turn to tell people where to stick it.

In 1989 Western Europeans threw away over 128 million 

printer ribbons. They weighed over 9,000 tonnes in total 

and would reach right around the world if laid end to end, 

A used ribbon cartridge is being thrown away somewhere in 

the UK every second of every day. 

You can help put an end to this environmental waste and 

save some money at the same time thanks to RE-INK, a 

revolutionary new spray which brings new life to exhausted 

fabric printer ribbons. 

HE-INK is cost effective and simple to use. Simply open up 

your plastic ribbon cartridge, spray a few squirts of RE-INK s special ink and lubricant formula 

and your ribbon is as good as new - sometimes even better! 

• flF-AHl save up to 90% on what you currently spend on new ribbons 

• fiFM- treated ribbons give clearer, blacker print than new ribbons 

• fff-MHTis a very high quality ink- no blotchy or patchy ink

approach isn't easy, but with Bars & Pipes Pro it couldn't be 

simpler. If you're a songwriter rather than a producer there 
simply isn't another sequencer that, comes anywhere near. 
It is stunning, and a pleasure to work with to boot 

The program's primary strength has to be its open- 
ended and flexible approach. If you want to try something 
new it actively encourages you to have a bash, and if it 
doesn't work out ewer/thing can go back to where it was 
without any risk of damaging the original data. 

As you may have noticed from the screenshots, the 
phrase Bars and Pipes doesn't simply refer to measures and 
instruments. In fact, a pipeline is the soul of the sequencer, 
through which all the Midi information passes. 

On the main track screen me pipelines start on the left, 
flow through the sequencer and emerge on the right. Once

Editing options - what's on offer 

* wring as the tools section can be, it's st* only part dF the package. Equally important has Lo be the program's edit- 
«9 options, and here again Bars 6t Pipes Pro isn't found wanting. 

Double didung on any sequence brings up the edit window which will display its data as ejther standard musical nota-

there, tney enter a final section of pipe, prior to leaving the 
package and heading for the synths or modules of your 
choice. The cSever bit is what can be added to the pipeline 
to alter the raw Midi data flowing through rL This is when 
the Toolbox makes its mark. 

As the name suggests, the ToolBox is a collection of 
gadgets that do all manner of wondrous things to Midi 
information. The variety is impressive and increasing by 
the day as more tools are added in the form of expansion 
modules. These modules contain numerous tools aJmed at 
a specific areas such as multimedia, studio work or simply 
to enhance creativity. 

Using a tool is simple - just select it from the bo* with 
the trusty rodent and drop it into the pipeline on either 
side of the sequencer. 

If took are placed in the pipe on the left of the 
sequencer, the actual Midi information within RAM is 
altered to reflect the chosen effect, However, if a tool is

<*m with tht default (olkdwi HrandreuJ lourwtf amNarf 



placed to Ihe right skfe onty, the data leaving the program 

and bound for the instruments is altered. 

Von can experiment as much as you like. If a particular 
effect sounds dreadful you can remove it at any stage, with- 
out permanent damage. 

Another huge bonus of the ToolBox format is its flexibil- 
ity. For example, if you were to place an Echo or Delay trsol 
onto several tracks* you effectively get a separate signal pro- 
cessor for each. 

This is because a complete copy of the tool is given to 
each track. Once in place, a simple double elicit and the 
tool reveals its very own requester, As a result, each track 
can be fine tuned to suit your particular taste. 

It's even possible to build macro tools from individual 
so if you were particularly fond of a harmonised effect with 
d touch of modulation and a little delay, you could combine 
all three into a single tool which would then take its place 
alongside the others as a permanent resident 

Flexible tools 

Tools aren't limited to single tracks - they can be employed 
on entire songs or just selected sections. They allow com- 
plex re-channelising of tracks on both the incoming and 
outgoing pipelines. If s wen possible to apply tools to in* 
vidual notes. Amazing.,. 

There are a reasonable selection of tools bundled with 
the software, but I doubt it would be long before anyone 
could resist the temptation of the additional modules. 

The number of took on a track is Kmittess, as indeed is 
the number of tracks themselves - the only restriction it the 
amount, of available memory. Two megabytes is about right 
- anything less and you could be struggling. Although the 
program wf I work with one megabyte, it wont thank you 
tor it- Bart & Pipes Pro is big , and I wont even come dose 



f»ir ii« f^«sHJari.fc-r»iiTsni»f3fri t«p*»fa. Lt^rjoL 




to explaining many of its fea- 
tures - there simply isn't enough 
space. Usually such a statement 

means weeks of misery with a 
manual the siie of a phone 
book, but that's not the case 
with Bars & Pipes Pro. 1n fact it's 
quite possible to dive straight in 
and get results, 

The entire design, layout and 
approach of the program is 
friendly and instinctive. For 
example, to mute a track you 
click on a tap until the flow 
stops. To overdub, click again 
and two pipes flow from the 
sequencer. Once more and a 
single pipe appears, allowing 
only pre-recorded data to 
emerge. 

This simple and logical 
approach filters right through 
the package Consequently the 
excellent manual becomes more 
of a handy reference than a con- 
stant companion. 

Tracks can be recorded individually or as groups - up 
to eight groups can be assigned in any song. Selection is 
simple and tram then on al of the component tracks act 
as one, Tracks can be easily merged or re-recorded and 
individual parts can be marked and eefted with the aid of 
U flag icons which sit along the top of the Track screen. 

Up to four aulo4ocate points can be defined through- 
out the piece. Automatic punch-in and out icons drop 
the sequencer kite record mode over a pne-selected sec- 
ten. Loop icons allow eight attempts at a specified sec- 
tion, after which you can choose between any of the 
eight to use in your creation. Edit markers allow you to 
define sections freehand or via their beat or measure. 
Even a stop icon is available so the sequencer won't trun- 
dle on forever if left unattended. 

Like all modem sequencers, Bars & Pipes Pro has 
adopted the familiar tape deck format to control record- 
ing and playback. The usual fast forward and rewind 
functions await alongside play and record, which can 
function from the start of toe track or from the position 
last stopped at 

Along with the old standards are buttons to activate 
the various flag options, plus a useful option to play and 
record at 3M and 1/2 speed - very handy I you're strug- 
gling with a tricky bit If s even possible to assign trans- 
port controls to hot keys on your master keyboaid. 

Tempo - and time keep- 
ing in general - are very 
well catered for, with four 
definable tempo speeds 
waiting within the tempo 
palette, plus a separate 
tempo map which allows 
you to add time changes 
graphical) 1 . 

All of the above, plus a 
dual SMPTE and &PM dis- 
play - in fact a hi comple- 
ment of SMPTE options - 
are available with the usual 



Power players 

Underneath the friendly exterior beats the heart of a very serious sequencer, with a 
ige of system-exclusive commands and SMPTE opuDns. As mentioned earlier, 
there's also a range of dedicated modules tor multimedia and video applications, 

To drive the DTV point home, Blue Ribbon Soundworks are presently developing 
additions which wiH operate with GVP's IV-24 multimedia cart The combination of 
Bars 6 Pipes Pro, SMPIb and the IV-24's PIP (KcltM in Pclure) could mean that 
Bars k Pnpes Pro may well dominate DTV and musical combinations on tht 

machine. 

Support is also planned for the Sunrtse Industries 12- and 16-bil sampling boards 
which could make the package a studio standard within the direct to disk market 

Even if the package tent adopted by the big boys, your creations can easily make 
il into the studio- Thanks to the strangely titled Mulfy utility, which coverts Bars & 
Pipes Pro's output into the universal Midi format that any studio sequencer wil be 
happy to work will i 

Other power options include complete ARexx support plus Big 5ys, which allows 
the transmitting and receiving ol system-exclusive information. This is ideal for 
sending and saving patch banks to your sequencer. 

For the ■•■ . there's also an option to use up Id Five separate Midi ports, 

giving a total ol 80 Midi channels to choose tram, Obviously you'll have to irv, • 
an appropriate serial expansion port, but that's a small pnee to pay tor the almost 
limitless power of 80 channels. 



array of tlmeccdes and with both internal and external 
configurations. 

When you've created a classic, added the effects and 
edited out the odd mishap, the final job is the mix. As you 
can see Irom the screenshots, Bars & Pipes Pro comei 
complete wim its very own onscreen mixing desk. How 
thoughtful... 

|ust lite its ^finitely more expensive hardware relations, 
it sets both the volume and pan (stereo position) of rJie 
sound. The limitless number of faders are controlled by the 
trusty rodent, and as in the track screen groups of tracks, 
can be combined and adjusted as a single unit 

IndwMuaJ faders or groups can be faded up and down 
on playback. If you're not sure about a particular mix, you 
can save it to the clipboard and experiment with another, 
When you're happy, just sit back and watch the faders 
automatically mis your masterpiece while you guzzle 
down a well-earned coffee. 

As you've probably guessed, you're Istening to a man 
in love... this is the sequencer I've been waiting for. Cute, 
cuddy, powerful and perfectly formed, what more could a 
muso want? This is a program written by musicians for 
musicians. 

If you're a composer looking for a sequencer that will 
inspire rather than restrict, there's quite simply nothing 
that comes even remotely close to Bars & Pipes Pro, If 
you're serious about your music and are willing to pay seri- 
ou.5 money to enhance it, look no further than the best cre- 
ative package in the business.

Can you protect your garden from bugs 
in Morgan Henry's shoot-'em-up? 



Bggblaster is a game in. which 
you are given control of a 
small, mobile insect-killer and 
narged with the task of keeping your 
garden free of infestation, The bugs 
*re out to ruin you' prize roses and 
only by furious defence will you avert 
:~e shame of having your neigfi hours 
peer over the back fence with a smugly 
ior expression on their faces. 
Trie game is quite difficult to mas- 
-• is your remote bugblaster travels n 
er than most of the baddies. In 
ition, its initial firepower is feeble 
jgh to make killing beetles a par- 
ticular pain In the nether regions, 
tnose T*80s of the insect world can 
tike four or five shots from your 
^••shooter without harm, so before 
■ng out of doors, its best to tool 
up on the armaments screen, 



Garden guardian 



Crr your mushy 
pea ifitinttfi 
herd 




Killing kit 



To start with, you have only £200 to 
spend on armaments, and some of the 
equipment On offer is too expensive. 
lr our basic peashooter, however, will 
fire only ten shots before it pauses to 
'eload, and you'll quickly appreciate 
how limiting this Is, 

The armaments on offer are, from 
"op to bottom and left to right, faster 
shots, more peas, long range peas, 
basic peashooter, three-way 




become tougher if they are allowed to 
eat one of the mushrooms left behind 
by the ladybirds. 

Ladybirds die with a single shot, but 
travel across the screen so fast that 
you're unlikely to hit them in time 
unless you're lucky enough to be firing 
in their direction as they appear. When 
the spores they leave behind begin to 
grow into mushrooms, be on the look- 
out for worms trying to least on them, 
A bug tresh from the fungoid flesh-pots 
will belch rudely and become a lot 
harder to till. 




peashooter, concentrated three-way 
peashooter, five-way peashooter, mushy 
peashooter, speedup, belter steering, 
and energy. The exit button takes you 
to the game. 

If you take my advice, you'll Invest in 



Maniac beetles 

No. not the loonies who insist on driving a car designed in the thirties with 
jfi eatiMist loud enough to wake the dead .it thirty paces. Bu<|1)I.isIl*i\ bat

jnrl mostly i" .1 sluight line 

When a beetle comes onscreen, run off to a reasonable distance, then 
lum and face it, shooting as fast as you can straight at Lis chops. Six or seven 
ihoti should bag the blighter. II you're too slow, and the beetle reachev vmi

a three-way peashooter at first- It 
should be just inside your price bracket 
and should leave enough change to 
take on an extra ten peas or faster 
shots. With this armament, the first 
level - with its single bug - is a doddle. 
As you progress, however, you'll have 
to earn enough bug money to buy ever 
more expensive weaponry until you are 
to insects what Arnold Scharzervegger 
is to scriptwriters, 



The bugs 



So what of your fearsome foes? The 
withering worm, the battle-hardened 
beetle, and the lascivious ladybird? Thfc-. 
bugs are the easiest to deal with, but 
they are tricky to catch if you have no 
speed or steering power- ups, and can 



ime! 

The beaker at the top right of the 
screen contains slime which slowly 
leaks out into the garden, and acts as a 
time limit. When it has all Icakwi out, 
the bugs will turn and head straight for 
you like cockroaches at a tin of tuna, so 
have an eye on your speed of eradica- 
tion. 

At the very top of the screen there is 
a thin line representing your energy. 
Every lime a bug hits you, this is dimin- 
ished until a gory giggle heralds the 
end of your insecticide career. You can 
slock up on energy at the armaments 
screen, but this is expensive, and uses 
precious bug money you'd probably 
rather sp*nd on mffitary hardware, 

Given a sound defence a;id arms 
acquisition policy (shoo: very fast and 
with the best kit you can afford), 
Hugh aster provides a challenging and 
addictive game. But rush in with little 
tnought (or hardware and you won't 
last more than a levd or two. Have fun!

Dictator 



Author. Steven Pugti 
The game Maggie tried to win but 

couldn't - can you succeed h becoming 
Dictator of all Britain? 

Dictator as a game type should be 
familiar to many computer users. The idea 
is to build your strength from lowly 
beginnings, wage war on your neigh- 
bours, humble them into the dust, and 
then tramp all over them with large air- 
tread boots. The British, in the past no 
mean payees at the real McCoy, -don't 
call these games empire-builders for noth- 
ing. 

You kick oft as the nominal lord of 
about haK of Britain. Some of your coun- 
ties are strong in industrial output, some 
are better for agriculture, but aH ol them 
must be defended. To do this, you have 
to raise an army. 

Armies, of course,, take a few bob to 
raise and feed for a year (as the 
Chanceflor recently discovered), and you 
have only enough cash jnitiarty to create a 
few units. Most counties already have a 
couple of army units stationed in them, 
but you'll need more. 



40 



Strategy 

Dictator is all about strategy, and that 

means finery balancing, all ol the factors 
which affect the outcome. These are the 
value and income generated from a 
county, your popularity there,, the relative 
industrial and agricultural strengths of 
each county, the tan rates you set, and 
military power. 

On the first turn, there's, no point in 
attacking anywhere as the computer will 
use this turn to build up military force in 
the counties m*n which attacks are to be 
launched. It's up to you to decide which 
counties are most important to you, then 
build up units in them to defend them 
against attack. 

Remember that income is generated as 
a tax, so there is little point in upping the 
tax rates in poorer counties Use the 
handy maps on the main game screen to 
find out where your strengths lie before 
making rash decisions. 

There are county-by-county maps of 



monetary value, income generated, pop- 
ularity, and military units, so there's 
enough information on hand to make 
general decisions before eliding on a par- 
ticular county and getting down to the 
nitty gritty. 

Once you do, you'll find each county 
can be developed in several ways. At the 
top of the screen there is an information 
line giving the county's name and its 
owner, and below that is Dictator's equiv- 
alent of The Big Red Button. Click on the 
asterisk beside the WAR burton and click 
on a neighbouring county to instigate 
hostilities. 

Tax rate 

Belore you do this,, of course, you'll have 
thoroughly analysed the data on offer in 
the lower two-thirds of the screen. Mo? 
And you attacked anyway? Ah well, I 
don't suppose anyone will miss Essex. 

You can set the tax rate for industry 
and agriculture separately, but note how 
the income figures change. If you decide 
you want a certain amount of income 
from a county, and it has a low level of 
agriculture, don't inflict high taxes where 
there's little chance of a high return - 
you'll only annoy the natives. Instead, it 
would be better to increase the state bur- 
den on industry. They deserve it anyway 
for making such a mess of our trade 
deficit, ;t 



Picturesque 

Author: Paul Burke;* 
NOTE. This program realty only works on 
1Mb machines. You can load it on an 
unexpended Amiga by interrupting the 
startup-sequence (hold down Ctrl and 
repeatedly lap the D key) and typing: 

tTt:«tlHtln/Ktfii«Hi»'Mttw*m>i 



but there will only be about 9k ot memory 
available, and you won't be able to cut 
brushes, load pictures, and so on, 

apologise to SI 2k Amiga owners 
lor the inconvenience, but it is a sign of 
the times. The A500 is now seldom sold 
with less than I Mb on board, and a reader 
survey last year indicated that almost 90 
per cent of our readers even then had 
extra memory. 

On to the program! As Picturesque is 
designed mainly u a paint program. I 
won't dwell on the features common to 
paint packages The large and wed 
designed control gadgets speak for them- 
selves. Where Picturesque is a real boon is 
in the creation of sprites for AMOS games. 

To enter sprite creation mode, select

right-hand comer of the bo* and dragging

Disk functions 

One feature of the program you're 
bound to find uselul is lb disk manage- 
ment menu. From here you can c i 
new drawer on a disk, delete unwanted 
files, and check a disk to find out how 
much space it has left 

When drawing pictures and designing 
icon, it's more than likely that you'll go 
through a number o1 revisioni or varia- 
t<ons before settling for a final image. 



Brush bonanza 



would show up many commercial paint 
programs. Try the stretch function ii you 
don't believe me. It works just as in 
Dpainl and is just as slick 

All in all. Picturesque'* only major limi- 
tation is that it does not support inter- 
lace. This is because AlvtOS itsefl doesn't 
allow interlace, though it soon should,

All values are altered by clicking on the 
+/- boxes beside each of the court/i 
attributes, Tax rates start at ten per cent 
and military units, where the* are any, 
will usually number only two. You'll need 
at least four or five unit* to ensure the 
defence of a key county, but as each unit 
costs £5.000 to raise, this can be an 
expensive exercise. 

Dictator calls for a lot of good judge- 
ment on the player's part, and the com- 
puter is a very difficult opponent to beat, 
Whether played against a friend or the 
computer, tJiclator is excellent entertain- 
ment. 



now holds information on the current 
spnle, including its size in pixels and its 
sprite number. You can skrp back and for- 
ward through your sprite bank by cli-*' 
on the arrows. 

When the up arrow is clicked, p 
sprite is saved as and is replaced by 
sprite box labelled "spare". You cj 
swap sprites, delete them, copy them 
generally muck them about. Whei 
sprite is complete, dick on the PUT b 
to add the sprite to your bank, then carry 
on with the next 



Flexible zoom 

VvVien you click on zoom, you are given a three-way split screen with the man magni- 
fled image in the middle and two smaller pictures on the right-hand side. The top one 
is a hall-zoom representation of your picture, and the bottom one is a zoomed-out 

,m wL these you can see wfth ease any changes and how they affect the look of the 
whole picture, The buttons on the zoom control panel will w oil me magnified area in 
four directions, increase or decrease the magnification, or set sprite hot spots. As yet 
the magnify option supports only 
freehand dotted drawing, but 
shareware registered users can 
hope to see this enhanced before 
long. 

You might find the zoom func- 
tion a little slow when scrolling the 
area around, hut the speed ol oper- 
ation is reasonable considering the 
program was written in AMOS, and 
just as good as many i commercial 
package I can think of.

The Directory 
Manager 

Author Chris Pertet 
TDM is a directory utility along the same 
lines as SID arid Disk Master, ll has fewer 
features than either of these programs, 
but as a consequence it is smaller and eas- 
ier to use. This makes it a prime candidate 
for squeezing onto your Workbench sys- 
tem disk, and should present beginners 
with lew problems, 

Devious devices 

On loading, the program shows a fairly 
standard directory manager screen, with 
two large windows and a selection of 
gadgets to click. The first thing you'll 
notice is how neat and presentable the 
program is, with its 3D look, sensible use 
of colour, and no-mess gadget strip. 

The central gadget strip is where all the 
action takes place, but nothing can be 
done here until some sort of directory has 
been loaded. To do this, click on one of 
the windows to activate it then on the 




* 



device you'd like to exam- 
ine from the list at the top 
of the strip II you'd rather 
go straight to a particular 
directory, you can dick in the 
strip above the window and 
type in the path as you would in 
Shell. 

Once your list has appeared you select 
a file by clicking once on it. The file will be 
highlighted with a small green arrow to 
one side. Now that the He is selected, you 
can appty any of the operations available 
through the gadgefe. 

Copy, rename, move, and delete are 
Llie most common of all AmigaDOS com- 
mands used, but you can also add com- 
ments- So a file, set its protection bits, make 
a new directory ki the tun-em directory, or 
print files. You must, or course, be using a 
disk With the correct print files ll situ, and 
must be attempting to print an Ascii fie. 

All change 

If you don't like the set of devices we've 
used on the gadget strip (5Y$:„ DF0: r 
Df 1 :, DF2;, and RAM:}, you can add your

With its fan graphics and 
low price, the Amiga 
makes a wonderfully inex- 
pensive Computer Aided Design, or 
Draughting {CAD) platform For quite a 
while. CAD was high on Commodore's 
priority list in its educational strategy. 
That enthusiasm seems to have waned 
a little, but some superb systems were 
helped along by that policy. 

Add an accelerator board and a dc- 
'nterlaced display to your Amiga, and 
you have a system capable of compet- 
ing with the very best at a fraction of 
the price. Vou don't believe me? The 
biggest exporter of CAD packages in 
the UK just happens to have its roots in 
the Amiga market. Some large com pa- 
nies have Amigas in their drawing 
offices, because for rapid redraws they 
cannot be beaten. 

So here are four of the top Amiga 



CAD packages. None of them are toys, 
yet they run on what most people think 
is a games computer. It just goes to 
show that most people are wrong,.. 

The great contenders 

Four CAD systems are reviewed here, 

ranging from under £100 to over £750. 
All of them are capable d( producing 
good, accurate drawings on dot matrix 
printers or pen plotters. 

Starting from the high end, 
DynaCADD offers complex 2D and 3D 
facilities presented from a graphical 
shell. DynaCADD is well established in 
the PC and Alan markets, but we will 
see how it fares against Amiga-devel- 
oped programs. 

Coming down a notch in price we 
have X-CAD 3000, a new release from 









Of mice and menus 



Quick 
on the 




Computer-Aided Design is an area where 
the Amiga outshines other machines. 

In the first of a two-part feature, 

Stewart C Russell begins his round-up 

of some powerful software 



Mouse 

All systems use the mouse in some 
form or another - DynaCADD and 
Plans use the convention used by 
AutoCAD, where the right mouse but- 
ton finishes or cancels a command. 
The mouse position with these sys- 
tems is given by fuH-screen crosshairs, 
which are very useful for aligning enti- 
ties by eye, 

In contrast, the X-CAD programs 
use a normal mouse pointer in the 
shape of a cross, This makes manual 
alignment difficult, especially on a hi- 
res screen, as the mouse pointer sprite 
is always displayed In low resolution. 

Menus 

is no standardisation in menu 
handling,, either, DynaCADD uses 
"icon pads" which change according 

to the command chosen. For exam- 
ple, to insert text one would activate 
the Insert kon in the main pad, then 
activate the Text icon in a subsidiary 
pad, and then choose one ol the text 
entry modes in a third pad. 

There are 60 of these icons 
arranged in a vertical strip one quarter 
the width of the- screen. 
Consequently, each icon is tery small, 
requiring extremely good eyesight to 
tell them apart or even to wort out 
what they represent at all. 

DynaCADD does have one great 
advantage over any of the other pack- 
ages - a built-in scientific calculator. 
All of the other systems require you to 
have a calculator handy for those dlffi- 
cult sums. Calculator output Is 
directed straight into the current com- 
mand, so mistyped numbers are a 



thing of the past. For packages coming 
from the same publisher, it's strange 
that X-CAD 1000 and X-CAD 3000 use 
different menu systems in their 2D edi- 
tors. 3O0Q uses a large horizontal text 
menu, containing every possible com- 
mand root. Selecting a menu item 
bnngs up a smaller menu of subsidiary 
options and so on, until the command 
is complete. 

X-CAD 2000 has a series of menu 
"trees" which show all available options 
in clear type, and other options 
ghosted, This is an extremely flexible 
system, esperialry when combined with 
user defined vertical menus, which 
allow a small degree of customisation in 
the package, X-CAD JOOO can mimic 
2000 's menus through user defined 
dynamic menu trees producing these 
trees a quite complex, however. 

Since the same program is used as 
the basis of the X-CAD 3D editor, the 
menu system is a straightforward verti- 
cal menu. My only criticism is that It 
can be rather slow to respond to com- 
mands - apart from that, te use is seff- 
evident. 

All X-CAD modules use a system 
called IDENT5 {Interactive Digitise and 
Entity Selection) for entity selection. It 
combines absolute co-ordinates, rela- 
tive co-ordinates, object snapping and 
object masking in one very powerful 
menu, accessible by all commands. 

Plans has few of these refinements. It 
uses standard Intuition menus with key- 
board short cuts and function key mod- 
ifiers. Numeric input is placed in a large 
requester which shows all the current 
settings at once, and allows any or all of 
them to be changed. The system seems 
very strange at first, but with practice 
becomes quick and flexible.

Other input methods 

DynaCADD and the X-CADs (sounds like a late seventies 
punk group) can be driven almost entirely without a 
mouse by typing abbreviated commands ai the key- 
board. X-CAD echoes what you type to a small console 
window at the bottom of the screen, bul oddly 
DynaCADD does not Very experienced CAD users tend 
to use keyboard Input for most tasks, so DynaCADl 
doing itself any favours by hiding the commands you 
type 

X-CAD 1QOQ supports input by two other meant. It 
directly supports the Cherry and Summao/aphks digllis 
fng tablets, and comes with an auxiliary utility to design 
input "buttom If you can afford a 

tablet, they are the best input method - by far. E • 
drawings can be traced, frequently used commands can 
be programmed Into one puck movement, and all (apart 
faun the magnetic held generated by these pads) is

If you want to be really nor ve with X-CAD 

3000, you can Input commands from a text file This 
would be a desperately tedious way to input a whole 
drawing, but Is useful for changing the working colours, 
or setting up a standard drawing border

Applied Vector Technology Ltd, X-CAD 

has been around in various guises for 
many years, but this is the only version 
to combine 2D editing with ID surfac- 
ing features. 

Originally designed to fit the educa- 
tional/hobbyist market, X-CAD 2000 is 
probably the cheapest 3D CAD system 
available anywhere. Although it doesn't 
have some of Its stablemate's more 
advanced feature s, it still offers very 
solid features at a very attractive price. 

Both X-CAD packages- use an exter- 
nal 3D editor, with the majority of the 
work being carried out in 2D and later 
joined together as 3D entities. This sys- 
tem keeps the size and Speed of the ZD 
editor reasonable, but causes delays 
when adding that extra dimension. 

You may still see the older X-CAD 
products (X-CAD Designer, Professional 
and 2D) floating around, They're wor- 
thy, but have been fully replaced by the 
new packages, X-CAD 2Q0Q is basically 
Designer plus some 3D and a little 
extra. X-CAD 3000 is essentially X-CAD 
Professional plus all of the X-CAD 3D 
system.

Raw speed 



Lowest in cost, but certainly not in 
ideas., comes Plans. This particular sys- 
tem started off as shareware more than 
three years ago, but has been revised 
and expanded into a very competent 
commercial 2D draughting system. 
Never before reviewed in a news-stand 
magazine, Plans has some real surprises 
in store. 

The main reason for the existence 
of CAD is time saving. Editing tradi- 
tionally produced drawings is a slow 
and difficult process, but electronic 
paper doesn't leave any eraser marks.

Ideally, we would like 

screen redraw times to be 

as low as possible, so that 

the machine does not 

intrude upon the creative 

design process. 

It would also be nice if 

the package could do its 

design calculations as 

quickly as possible, but 

this depends more on the 

computer power, rather 

than on the cleverness of 

the CAD author, Basically, 

you can't change that 

unless you buy a quicker 

machine. 

Since Plans does not 

support 3D, a 2D speed 

test was used, A fairly sim- 
ple drawing was imported , 
into each package (using " 
DXF with DynaCADD and the X-CAD, 
HPCL with Plans) and the redraw time 
noted. 

Bath the X-CADs turned in the 
rather impressive redraw time of 3,5 
seconds. Next up was Plans at a more 
pedestrian 6 seconds, and last was 
DynaCADD at 6,3, All these speeds 
were taken from a rather wheezy ASOO 
with a plain vanilla processor- 
Three-dimensional work is slow, 
especially where surface calculations 
are involved- With large models on a 
66000-base-d system, the redraw time 
can be minutes. My advice would be 
to stick to simple 3D line entities if you 
have anything less than an A3000. X- 
CAD 2000 specifically misses out on 
3D surfaces to keep its complexity 
(and price) down while keeping its 
speed up, 

The conclusion? Mote money spent 
doesn't necessarily guarantee more 
speed, but a fast program will return

fonts such as Times-Roman and 
Triumvirate are the norm. 

DynaCADD has stunning text sup- 
port. Not merely does it have some 
beautiful fonts licensed from 
Compugraphic,, but it has a minimal 
text editor built in. Add to that a good 
number of text sizing and placing 
modes, and you have something very, 
very special. 

Ditek have even addressed the fact 
that complex fonts take a while to 
draw, so are crossed out (or g reeked) at 
small size on screen. In the unlikely 
occurrence that you get bored with the 
supplied fonts, a rather neat external 
vector font editoT is supplied. 

Dimensions are particularly cute in 
DynaCADD, All the options are pre- 
sented in a large graphical requester, 
which shows small examples of each 
dimension type. You pick the one you 
want, add any tolerances, and stick it 
on to the page. Neat. 

K^AD 3000 supports multiple fonts, 
although the range is not nearly as nice 
as DynaCADD' s. Fonts can be edited 
within the program by drawing out a 
matrix of characters on a page and sav- 
ing that out as a complete font. 

Text handling in X-CAD 3000 is 
more than adequate for most applica- 
tions, A particularly neat feature allows 
numeric labels to be incremented as 
they are inserted onto a part - perfect 
for pinoul labeling. 

X-CAD 3000's dimensioning is every 
bit as capable as DynaCADD's, but all

the parameter! have to be chosen from 
text menus. While it won't take long to 
rearm these menus, it's nowhere near as 
intuitive. 

Text management In the lower bud- 
get programs it less sophisticated. X- 
CAD 2000 can only use one very plain 
font but has fairly powerful text place- 
ment and sizing command!. Plans can 
make use of user-defined fonts, but the 
text placement commands are limited 
to simple size,, justification, slant and 
rotation manipulations. 

Neither X-CAD 2000 or Plans can 
handle tolerances, but the former has 
all the main dimensioning commands 
found in 3000- Plans has very rudimen- 
tary linear and angular dimensioning, 
but these are really all that are required 
in a 2D package. 

My review copy of Plans does not 
automatically apply dimension lines 
when measuring - the dimension line 
has to be placed manually, and the 
leader lines added later, This has been 
fixed in v2.l, so you will get neat 
dimensions if you buy the package 
now.

OynaCADD, on the other hand r has 
3D support built-in to the main editor, 
which supports multiple views on one 
page, With judicious use of this system,

lary" can be drawn simultaneously. Or, 
if running on a 6flGQ0 machine, while 
you wait, This kind of drafting isn't 
light on CPU time. 

Every DynaCADD 2D entity can be 
drawn in 3D, and extruded or swept 
round a path to create surfaces. The 



only limitations on what can be cre- 
ated are storage, processor time and 
your patience. 

X-CAD 3000 is only slightly more 
limited than DynaCADD, Lines, arcs 
and points are the only entitles com- 
mon to the 2D and 3D editors, while 
surfaces can be planar t curved or 
solids of revolution. 

This covers just about everything 
that can be manufactured, so the limi- 
tations are not great. 

Two-dimensional features created 
in the main editor can be added on 
any construction plane, then the fea- 
tures worked on as desired . 

The resultant surfaces can be ren- 
dered in a fairly crude manner to give 
some idea of the true appearance- 
Sculpt it ain't, but it does the fob ade- 
quately and quickly. 

X-CAD 2000 has simplified 3D sup- 
port- The number of construction 
planes is limited and surfaces are also 
not supported at all. At the price, any 
3D support is an excellent deal indeed.

A question of standards 



30 support 



48 



We in the UK are supposed to be metric 
(FX; muffled sniggering from the engi- 
neering industry). Plans hails from the 
United States, where they use English 
units, which really means Imperial units. 
Confused? 

The upshot of this is that metric 
units are of secondary importance in 
Plans. If you want to use them, you 
must supply a negative value for the 
dimension precision, Just one of these 
things we have to live with, I suppose. 

Plans doesn't support 3D at all, 
although you could use its isometric 



Intuition's Preferences printer routines are much maligned. 
They work - if a little slowly - with just about any printer to a 
reasonable degree of accuracy. 

Plans is the only program to use Preferences for its dat- 
matiix output, and the results are as good as you'll get out of 
any CAD system. The tricky bit is actually dealing with the 
Preferences program itself - the printer entries are not well 
documented, and worse still, are biased towards US paper 

si^es. 

Some Preferences drivers - notably the HP Deskjet and 
Laserjet - are not capable of otitputting to a full M page, so 
you may have to use a larger border with these printers. 

X-CAD 2000 uses the "any printer you want as long as it's 
Epson compatible" approach. Although it is limited to 72 dpi 
on a 9-pin Epson and ISO dpi an a 24-pin, the results look 
good because the dots are square rather than oblong. 

X-CAJD 3000 is a little more flexible, but only just, In order 
to create a dot matrix printout, 
must first create a raster plot file 
the correct size and resolution 
file can be filtered through a d: 
to get hard copy on the printer 

This would be a great system 
there were more drivers. Only 
Epson dot matrix and HP Laserj 
monochrome printers are 
ported, plus the (expensive) Xen 
4020 colour Inkjet and the ' 
expensive) Mitsubishi C500 colo 
thermal transfer printer. 

The first two drivers cover at 
OS per cent of the world' I pri 
but it's the five per cent left 
that make all the noises a 
incompatibility, DynaCADD 



custom drivers tor its dot matrix drivers. Only a few are sup- 
plied with the package, but others are available from the 
supplier. As shipped, you get Star 9-pin, Epson 24-pin, HP 
Laserjet (which also works with the Deskjet) and Roland 

drivers. 

Curiously enough, DynaCADD can also output IFF pic- 
tures at up to 300 dots per inch via one of these drivers. Ifs 
also the only program to support background plotting 
directly, and also output to a PostScript device. 

The PostScript output was particularly well formed, but 
then again, most output from a really good laser printer 
looks good. DynaCADD also claims to output to 
Encapsulated PostScript for DTP use - this it does, but It 
fouls up the actual size of- the drawing in the clip. 

The net result is usually a tiny little drawing in a great big 
empty box - a shame, really, because this would be seri- 
ously useful If it worked. 



Plotter compatibility 

It s ill very well saying how nice a CAD package is to use. but the ultimate rea- 
son lor using one is to produce drawings, tf the afore mentioned CAD package 
can do it quicker than drawing by hand, so much the aetier 

The traditional output H*e Hewlett-Packard compatible pen pfc I 

comes In at the £400 mark for *n A3 device. Needless to say. all I 
ages support a plotter of thil description 

It i no great loss that X-CAD 2000 only supports this type of plotter, as 
are extremely common X-CAD J0O0, however. Is happy to send vector output 
to Hewlett-Packard, Houston Instruments and 6cn»n plotters, and also to 

Kyocera laser | 

DynaCADD and Plans support any kind of vector plotting language, as long 
as it tan be typed into a configurator) file. DynaCADD uses the very lavish 
Makeplot program to do this (or you c»n load one of the many drivers sup 
plied), while Mans requires a couple of commands to be added in to the config- 
uration file using a text editor

MIGA 




The update trail continues 

with a host of 24-bit 

enhancements, the new 

Real 3D, plus the latest from 

the world of wordprocessing 



Perhaps the biggest news in ray tracing has to 
be the release of Real 3D vl ,4. With competi- 
tors like Imagine, something special was 
needed to stamp Real's authority on the market, 

As a result vl.4 was bom, with a huge afray of very 
impressive additions. At the forefront of its expanded 
repertoire is the stunning selection of free form editing 

tools. 

The new tools appear on the pull-downs and within 
the ever-expa riding selection of onscreen icons. Using 
them makes the creation of irregular objects a dream. 
But the fun doesn't stop there... 

Once created, these new organic shapes can be eas- 
ily edited thanks to another long-awaited edition - 
point editing. Now Real can hold its own with Imagine 
in the only area in which it was previously outgunned. 

Within the expanded modelling functions are a 
selection of up to 24 different ways of bending and 
twisting free form objects. Perfect smooth- curves, hol- 
low spirals, instant mountain ranges extruded from flat 
surfaces - in fact just about anything a twisted mind 
can imagine, 

As you'd expect, there are two versions of the pack- 
age. For the economy minded there's the standard ver- 
sion, which doesn't include the more sophisticated 
features such as the macro functions, Hodean opera- 
tions and 24-bit output, 

The professional package, however, boasts the full 
complement of features and contains a turbo optimised 
version that supports power processors such as 68020s, 
6S0 sOs and 68040s, with or without maths co-proces- 




sors. All versions require at least 1 Mb of memory, but 
for professional users 3 Mb are recommended - which 
funnily enough is exactly the same amount of space as 
the beast will occupy on your hard disk. 

Apart from the structural differences between the 
two versions, there's the addition of extra ready-made 
materials, textures, objects and fonts, all packed onto 



ProPage bugs sorted out 

It seems only a short while ago that Cold Disk released ProPage v2.0, which was immediately suffocated by the 
sheer weight of reviewers desperate to outdo each other in their wholesome praise of the package. So why the 
new version? 

The secret is that ProPage v2J hasn't realty been upgraded at all. What the legions of wildly enthusiastic 
reviewers forgot to tell you was that ProPage v2.0 suffered from a few bugs, all of which have now been ironed 
out. 

The new version has a much smoother feel to it, 
and you no longer feel the need to save a document 
every two minutes in case there's a glitch or a crash. 
In addition, the print to dot matrix option is much 
improved. There is a landscape printing option, and a 
long-needed page offset control which, in combina- 
tion, complete the printing options for those with dot 
rnatnx printers. 

Apart from these changes, there's little to report, 
other than that possibly the best of the Amiga's DTP 
packages is now as reliable in operation as it deserves 
to be. Full marks to Cold Disk For taking a responsible 
attitude towards their product.

Imagic and the 
IV 24 

As you've probably noticed Irom reviews of GVP's lat- 
est brainchild, the IV-24 graphics card - which will 
practically walk the dog, do the dishes and collect the 
kids - has one major failing, which is the lack of a 
decent paint package. 

Macro paint, the package bundled with the IV-24, is 
a little sad to say the least, and as a result G2 Systems 
have stepped into the breach and are offenng a ver- 
sion of their very own Pmagic paint program, which 
presently resides solely on their own VD2001 24-bit 
graphics card. 

The IV-24 version will follow the same format as it 
does within VD2001, with two complementary mod- 
ules. The first is aimed at those interested in the basics 
of 24-brt art, and the second For the professional user. 
Of course, G2 will be happy to supply you with both, 
no doubt complete with a slight discount.

The price of the new package isn't yet derided hot 
it's a fair bet that both packages will letail at around 
£350 apiece. A little expensive, but it you're serious 
about employing the IV-24 as an artistic platform 
rather than just a multimedia display board, if s, a price 
you'll have to pay.

ProWrite 3 2 

Users of New Horizons' wordprotessor have long suf- 
fered in silence while the likes, of Protext, Excellence 
and the new upstart Wordworth stole the glory and 
the accolades of reviewers this side of the pond, With 
the release of version 3.2, this could change some- 
what 

The upgrade follows similar lines to that of 
Wordworth 1.1 (see last month's Updates) in that 
PostScript is now directly supported from within the 
program. However, New Horizons have obviously 
taken a long look at ProWrite, and iave set to rights 
some of the omissions from which ProWrite 3-0 suf- 
fered. 

PostScript, being the language spoken by all setf-

freWrltt - ttK king o* th* Amiga pmtm-orf 






Tespecting laser printers, has become the de facto 
standaTd for wordprocessors to aim foe. It would have 
made its appearance in Amiga applications long ago 
were it not for the machine's market placing - firmly 
below the business field where laser printers an most 
commonly found.. Nowadays, the Amiga's image has 
improved and software houses are trampling each 
other underfoot in the rush to embrace the standard. 

Unfortunately, New Horizon's implementation of 
PostScript is not as neat as Wordwarth's, though fust 
as capable of producing the goods. There are onry 
four PostScript fonts on offer, and page scaling is not 
present on the PostScript print options screen, though 
it can be round in the page setup screen. 
This has its advantages, in that it forces the user to 
think about scaling before going to the 
print menu, but there teally should be a 
horizontal and vertical scaling function on 
the PostScript options screen, and 
ProWrite j till has no equivalent of 
Wordwarth's rotation facility. In all, 
though, ProWrite v3.2's PostScript printing 
is a major improvement on previous ver- 
sions. 

A second printing improvement taken 
on board by v3,2, and already found on 
Wordworth, is the High quality print 
option for owners of dot matnx. printers. 
When this is enabled, ProWrite will use a 
font twice the sue of that chosen by the 
user, then scale it down for printing. The 
result is text of a higher dot resolution and 
thus fewer j aggies. The option works as 



J 



well as Wordworth's UltraPrint option (using the same 
technique), and for users with a denuded fonts direc- 
tory, New Horizons are offering the Profontsl pack- 
age, which has a vanety of fonts and font sizes to make 
high quality dot matrix printing a bit easier, 

A nice touch is ProWrite's automatic scaling Df 
Workbench 2,04 s Compugraphic fonts, It these are 
used in a document which is then printed to a dot 
matrix using the High option, ProWrite will use a dou- 
ble size font and scale it automatically, relieving the 
user of the need to check his or her fonts directory. 

Together with its direct PostScript support, this 
places ProWrite in direct competition with Wordworth 
for the crown of the Amiga Wysiwyg wordprocessors. 
HowevEr, I can't help feeling that it will lose the battle, 
as the program's oltiyr features haven't been upgraded 
with v3.2, 

The overall look has been cleaned up, and now the 
program has a decidedly Workbench v2.0 feel to it, but 
the spell checker hasn't been improved and is still a bit 
slow for my liking, though Wordworth itself is quite a 
bit slower than Protend in this area. In terms of typing 
Speed, there is little to choose between them. 

Wordworth vl ,1's support for built-in printer lonts 
and its more comprehensive use of PostScript give it a 
distinct edge in the user friendliness department- As it 
supports the direct loading of ProWrite documents 
{among others) and as Digits are offering a £40 price 
cut on trade-ins for your old wordprocessor, it still 
seems a more attractive buy.

TVpaint and G2 get together 

As, you may know, the Amiga Centre Scotland has long been the leading light in 24-bit applications. This is primarily due to their Harlequin board, which has 
been, and still is, the benchmark against which all newcomers are judged. 

The resolution and flexibility of the board certainly make it special, but this isn't the only thing that put the Harlequin at the forefront of Amiga art. After all, 
any hardware is only as good as the software it runs, and fortunately TVpaint is very good indeed. 

Until now, the package has ran exclusively on the ACS board, Great 
news for the Harlequin, but perhaps not so hot for the opposition, 
Fortunately, the Harlequin monopoly has Finally been broken. As a result 
the best package in the business is now on offer to users d C2's VD2001 , 

At present, only v4 of the package is available, even though the 
Harlequin is already employing v5. If you're after regular updates, it could 
be worth enquiring about continued support for the board. 

However, it's difficult to imagine much scope lor improvement, as the \ 
present version has all the features of the original TVpaint plus brush 
mapping, which allows you to wrap any brush image around any shape. 

The only noticeable omission is the lack of support for the VD2001 's 
Irame grabbing abilities. Unlike G2's own Imagic paint package, TVpaint 
can't grab direct from a live video source. 

As a result, it does limit the package as a first choke, as you need to 
invest in module one of the Imagic system to employ the board's impres- 
sive grabbing skills. 

Of course if you already have the ability to grab, an upgrade to 
TVpaint will give you a state-of-the-art videographic workstation that 
many a graphic artist or production company yuppie would eat his or her 
portable phone for.,,

Golden Image 3A-1D 



58 



The first thing you notice about the iA-1D Is its unique two-digit LED track 
display which indicates the position of the magariite read/write head in trie 
floppy disk drive. The reason tor the track display is that, in theory, you can 
see a virus, writing itself to the boot block of your disk. 

To the beginner these digits don't mean a thing - they're just pretty nice 
to look at, But to someone who's got & bit of skill and experience and is 
always on the lookout for viruses, it's, quite a handy gadget - but you should 
also ensure that you always have your vims checker at the ready and 'Ante- 
protect your disks - this will guarantee that you won't be troubled by the 
nasty little pests. 

Normally sin isn't that important, but in the case of external Happy disk 
drives it is a very important factor indeed, In fact, the smaller the better as 
far as I'm concerned, because with all the other peripherals on my desk there 
|ust isn't the space for any more bulky equipment. 

Compared to other drives, the Golden Image 3A-1 D is absolutely huge - 
very long and wide. The only reason I can find for this is that it incorporates 
the two-digit track display. 

Included in the package is a large manual. This might seem strange at 
Nrfl why does an external floppy needs so many instructions? - but it 
become;, blmdmgly obvious when you flick through it and find that it's in 



three different languages. So from a targe manual you only get 14-odd pages 
of technical information. Who wants to read a book about external drives 
anyway 7 

In use, the 3A-1D performs very well. When you pop a disk into the drive, 
it detects its presence fairly quickly. 
The drive's noise level ii quite low 
because it has been silenced by some 
anti-click circuitry. It also has a stan- 
dard through port and an on /off 
switch,

It's nice apart iron: the huge size, It 
would be perfect for more Flashy 
Amiga owners - you can impress all 
your chums with the usual "look my 
drive is better than yours, it's got 
flashing lights on it" boast, 

To be honest, the track display 
makes H more interesting than most 
drives on the market, but ii it (ust a 
gimmick? On the whole a good buy.

Looks 





The thing most people hate about the 
Amiga ii the amount of disk swapping 
that has to be done ihis ii most infuriat- 
ing, especially when you are playing a game and 
you have to swap disks several times just to get to 
lhe next level. 

All of these problems could be solved If only 
you had an external drive, but there are questions 
to be asked, like which one do I buy 7 Whkh is the 
best? Arid more importantly, which one gives real 
value for mohey? 

Many of these drives have extra features like 
backup utilities (ahem) and antl-dicks which stop 
the drive clicking when there isn't a disk in it. ArE 
these advantages or disadvantages 7 Are the dnves 
well designed? If you accidentally spill your drink 



wary of the amount of power that some oi these 
drives need. It's not too bad for anyone who owns 
anything but the A5GG, but if you do own an 
A500, then you must pick your external floppy 
carefully. 

When using a program that takes a lot of mem- 
ory, always remember to take out your external 
floppy because if you don't, even on a 1Mb A50Q, 
your Amiga will crash. Most drives these days have 
an on/off switch at the back, so you don't have to 
unplug your external when using a memory-con- 
suming program. Almost every external has a 
through port built into it. If you have more than 
one external drive, this handy device let'; you 
v chain' your drives together.

1 1 ,i . disk drive ii made by Zydec, a company based in the US- Zydec normally produce good equipment 
that is well marketed and well packaged. How does their floppy measure up to their own standards? 

The drive has a standard Citizen mechanism which nwre than copes with most situations It has all the 
usual fittings, along with a through port and an on/off switch. It doesn't have an anti-cluck device fitted, 
hut it doesn't click and is remarkably quiet* so that hardry mat- 
ters. 

The metal case is fairly standard and it's got some cooling 
vents tn it, which in the case of external floppies is a big no-no 
- if you spill that coffee then it's bye-bye floppy. It does have a 
tine mesh over it to stop any bits getting in and ruining the 
drive. 

It is really easy to use - just lake it out of the box, flick the 
switch to turn it on, plug it in and then boot up the computer. 
However, it suffers quite badly due to a lack of gimmicks like 
anti-clicks and anti-viruses. 

It doesn't really look that interesting in its rectangular box. 
but it does gel the job done If you are looking for a nice ordi- 
nary drive with no gimmicks then this might be useful to you. 
Overall, it's pretty average, and there are much better drives 
on the market

Cumana 

I found this drive perched on Ami'go 
Computfng's features editor's desk, 
Cumana have been around lor years and 
years and they've been making disk 
drivei since I was in nappies, if you want 
a reliable but boring drive then the 
Cumana CAX354 is for you. You get the 
two main features - the through port 
and the lowly little on/off switch. 

This refaabte drive will last tor ever and 
ever. According to our features editor, his 
clicks noisily with the best of them. I have 
bwn reliably informed that Cumana now 
make lhe drive with a handy anil-click 
device built-in, making it a tot quieter. 
You could possibly call it an .Amiga inter- 
nal drive that's been ripped out of the 
machine and used as a external. 

It's a tiny bit expensive when com- 
ther externals, but as my 
to say, shop around. You 
can normally get one of these for around 
£60 to £65 - if you have a good look 
•round. 

Boring it may be, but although it 

t'sn't have any other features, il does 
what you bought your extra drrve for 
in the first place - be an extra drwe - reli- 
ably and efficiently. The latest version is 
quiet (even though our old one isn't!) 
and is a fairfy good buy. Average.

ower PC880B 

This drive contains more gadgets than Batman's utility belt (well, perhaps 
not that many}. The PC880B has three modes, all of which can be selected 
with a handy little switch. In normal mode, il behaves like a perfectly nor- 
mal drive. If you switch to anti-virus mode it automatically w Hie-pro tects. all 
floppies, including those in other drives. 

This means that no data can be written to any floppies, so a virus cannot 
infect any disks at all. You still need to check for viruses, because the drive 
doesn't know what a virus is - it only stops a virus writing itself to one of 
your disks. Avery good idea by Power that is well implemented. 

The other main feature of the PC8B0B is the controversial disk backup 
hardware. This feature is called Blitz, and when used with the supplied soft- 
wart 11 w attempt to copy any disk and get past many forms of copy pro- 
tection. It won't crack all protected disks, but it will backup many that can't 
normally be copied. 

Now this is a very dodgy subject indeed, PAST (the Federation Against 
Software Theft) and games software houses want to see this kind of back 
ingup controlled, Remember, you are 
not allowed to bach- up any software 
that isn't your own work, Personally I

The drive itself is quite long, but is 
nice and slim. It features the standard 

through port and on/off switch, It's 
very quiet because it uses an anti- 
click board. Overall the PC880B looks 
good, is quite cheap and comes with 
a clear and concise manual, As such It 
is well worth spending your hard 
earned pennies on. An excellent buy. 




Power Dual Drive 




Features 
Looks 



Jow this is a bit special. Trie dual drive from Power gives 
you the benefit of two external floppy drives in one com- 
pact case. It's quite heavy, but for a dual dnve is very slim 
indeed. It has its own 5V DC power supply, so that the 
power is not drained from your Amiga 
The two external dnves Sfe independent and copying 

K rations can be carried out between the computer and 
er drive or from one drive to another. Hoth dnves pos- 
sess the unique Power anti-click feature so that they do not 
click when empty. 

It will operate as a standard read/write 880k external 
floppy drive, but like its single sister, the Power PC880B, it 
has the anti-virus and Blit? options. 

Just as a quick reminder, the anti-virus function prevents 
wnte access to the boot block on all drives (including the 
internal). Remember, this (unction only prevents viruses 
from placing themselves on the boot block - it doesn't stop 
the blighters. So always use a good virus checker and, more 



importantly, always write-protect your disks. This drive also 

has Blitz - the dodgy backup/copy device I don't realty see 

the point in having this function as it just angers people like 

FAST. It also has the 

usual through ports Price: £120.00

Overall it's great. It 
looks good, it's a sen- 
sible size, and 
although it's a bit on 
the expensive side, 
you a<re getting two 
dnves instead of one. 
A worthy buy if you 
can get the dodgy 
backup software off 
your conscience.

Roclite 
RF382C 

Looking for an ultra-fast, ultra-thin, exter- 
nal floppy disk drive? Maybe you should 
look at the fiodite RF3$2C, This baby- 
looks mean in every sense of the word. 
ffs very thin indeed, in fact no thicker 
than a box of matches. For size you can't 
get much better than this. 

The drive is made by Roctec, a new 
company who make floppies, hard disks, 
expansion catch and other such periph- 
erals, A5O0 owners are in for a bonus 
because the Roc lite doesn't take up 
much power at all. 

If you are looking for a really Fast 
drive, then this one is for you. It is almost 
twice as fast as your internal drive. There 
are no nasty holes in the sleek, black cas- 
ing, so any spillages won't ruin it. 

The drive is available in either Amiga 
ivory or in CDIV black. It has all the stan- 
dard features such as the through port 
and the on/off switch. In use it performs 
very well indeed - it's quiet and fast. 

Overall, (his is the sleekest drive of all 
those on test, with its black casing. A 
good performer and the price isn't going 
to break your bank balance. Rcctee is a 
i for the future, I think.

Conclusion 

There you have it - what's hot and 
what's not in the world of external 
floppy disk drivei, Whether you want a 
drive with loads of gadgets (Power 
PC 8KOB) or you want a fairly cheap 
model (Zydec), or you want to be really 
extravagant (Power dual drive, Colden 
Image 3A-1 D), the choice is yours, 

I would recommend the Power 
PC880B because it's fairfy small, very 
cheap and get's the job done. But don't 
forget that this is just a selection of drives 
- there are loads more available. 

rtiE market for drives, whether they 
be floppy or hard, is currently flourish- 
ing. With more and more development 
work on floppy drives and with better 
technology being made available, who 
knows wUii ii in store For the Amiga 
external floppy disk drive? Things can 
only gel better..

rowning under a sea of 
Midget Gems may be 
the ultimate chrldh 
fantasy, but it it ewer actita 
came try* Hie shock e 
too much for some. 

Midget Genu are those 
fabulous sweets that have 
been variously described as 
"like wine gums but 
harder", "brilliant", and 
those things broke my 
tooth you know". Th~ 
fame in assorted colo 
and flavours, from Uqux 
to strawberry, and are *h 
something like a cup i 
turned upside down, and shrunk 
a hundred times. 

Now this begs an interesting 
question: how the hen do y 
know it ii upside down? Is thi 
some kind of ml c rosea pit mes- 
sage that reads this way up 
that we only become aware of on 
a subliminal level? 

Or is it some kind of primitive 
instinct that has been handed 

j j.a l~ Al__ ^«jh« &■ iif AAA. 



e rations of dedicated Midget Gem 
eaters that makes us alt blissfully 
aware of exactly which way 
round the conical confectionery 
should go? Or some kind of plot 
by some crooked political faction

eaters? 

Imagine the effect if ad of a 
sudden the people were told that 
their favourite sweets had been 
the wrong way up all along - 
never will a milk carton be 
opened the same way, people 
will be forever juggling their 
bags of Monster Munch in an 
effort to suts out which end to 
open. 

But what has all this wlbble 
got to do with a .- 7- ■ 
game? Probably 
vtry little but the 
dangerous similar- 
ity between the 
antagonists in this ^1 
game and tht , 1 
afore-men- 




Mldget -

The Sorcerer's apprentice

Fluff" spells was no lor 
enough. Yes, the impatlenci 
youth was beginning to become 
impossible to bear. 



Sorcerer had to go on some 
urgent errand (apparently Spells 
■p.' Us were having a bulk shift of 
bat 3 wings and the guy just 
couldnt afford to miss out| so he 
told the apprentice not to touch 
anything - especially not the big, 
interesting-looking case which 
has nothing of interest in it. No 
sir, not that one. 

Curiosity suitably aroused, the 

apprentice could hardly wait for 

the old codger - he was At 

■v Methusalehi twenty first 

- to go so he could grab a 

ii ^ 1 shufti at the spell book 

*\ 1 and get the case open. 

p Minutes later, straining 

, under the weight of the 

dust which the sor 

cerer paid 




someone to painstak- 
ingly apply to the 
spell hook every 
day for that 
"authentic" feel, 
our apprentice

the apprentice. 
Soon he found the 
spell he needed - How 
to open a big, interesting 
looking case which has nothing of 



He recited the spell: "He 1 ere, 
"es there, '•'! every flamin' when

scnoofteachers the world over 
are familiar with. Smoke bil- 
lowed from under the lid. Then 
it air stopped. The place went 
quiet. No-one made a sound, 
Silence, really. 
Convinced he had failed in 



grown-up magic fte went over to 
the case and stared at it, only to 



case's lid flew open and out 
came millions upon millions

|whistley bit| , Disaster! The 
Apprentice was a Fuziball. 
"Damn, he said, 

When the Sorcerer returned 
the apprentice/Futzball was qui- 
etly blubbing to himself in a cor- 
ner. 'Blub. I should have listened 
to me mother and joined the 
bank like she wanted. Blub, 
blub. 

The air was turned blue is the 
Sorcerer returned and made some 
swift mental calculations as to 
what exactly had gone on - he 
was clever like that. 

The punishment was simple. 
Gear the SaHpmbers of the cas- 
tle of every single little furry 
thingy, then maybe the Sorcerer 
wilt see fit to return the appren- 
tice to his human form, and let 
htm keep his job, 

Cue fifty level platform game. 

The objective Is simple, As a 
fuziball , you muit negotiate the 
intricate one screen levels and 
collect alJ the jewels - which are 
there for no reason that I can 
fathom out, but they do help the 
gamepiay. Oh, and shoot all the 
rogue Fuzzbal U- 

Soundi easy, but there is a lot 
more to it. If you can do it then it 
perfectly acceptable to just take 
the jewels and forget the 
Fuizballs, but in practice this is 
usually impossible. 

There are four different kinds 
of Fuizbalf - green, purple, black 
and red. Green are the easiest to 
get rid off, red the worst. The 
principle of destroying them is 
quite simple - using the little 
balls that you can spit you hit 
them enough times to turn them 
into mini versions of the next 
colour up. 

This mini ball will bounce for 
four times giving you the chance 
to touch it and get rid of it com- 
pletely, ff you don't manage to 
touch it, (hen it transfers to the 
neat and more dangerous colour, 
green to purple, purple to black 




^^"

and so on. Each colour *fa 
Fuziban has Its own behaf iour 
pattern. Green will just move 
back and forth in a confined 
space, purple will do the same 
until you jump onto the same 
platform when they will race 
towards you, black will race back 
and forth over several platforms, 
turning when you Jump onto 
their route and red will do the 
same hut an awful lot faster. 

The Fuziball you control must 
jump around, across, up and 
down the numerous platforms of 
the level. Often the route around 
the screen must be planned v« 
carefully because it is impossible 
to get off certain platforms. Sane 
of them you won t need to go 
near, but once per level you will 
find one with a jewel an that 
must be left until Jaytfand it 
won't always be pflrtkMlimry obvi- 
ous, mal 

The later levels need a lot of 
thought before even moving as 
to exactly how they ari> going to 
be tackled, it will often be a little 
less than clear as to exactly what 
you ate going to have do. But 
that is all part of the challenge. 

Graphically it can t be faulted - 
it possesses that coin-op feel that 
Parasol Stars has, but goes one 
better. It gradually progresses 
through four distinct graphical 
styles, that provide a variety In 
the backgrounds to keep the 



our atii nim r§st up. With the added

ent sound effects. A game like 
this needs a lot of unnecessary 
sounds to liven it up and make it 
more enjoyable, and to give it a 
chance of standing up against 
other games in the genre. 

The payability is superb - the 
levels are ail challenging and 
there are no easy levels to give 
you a rest- The main Fuzz ball is 
extremely manoeuvrable and pro- 
vides Jots of fun. This, though, 
also presents a problem - for less

named Dr Devious - ex-politician, ex-ta*- 
man. ex-DPP - has come up with a plot 
to hold the world to ransom as a 
revenge for his untimely demise from 
the forefront of public life. 

Using his immense scientific skiNs, 
honed and focused in a garden shed. 
Dr Devious built a weapon. A weapon 
so powerful and so. well, cfewous really 
that it scared the pants off him. While 
bending down to pull them back up he 
realised that he would soon be a very 
rich man. 

The weapon was a feat of molecular 
manipulation, chemical control and 
physical fondling. Or something, It

sentation of itself |he fancied himself as 
a bit of an art buff] and then juggle it

aftershave to do it. 

If you want to know what he looks

This is a weird game. The first thing

excuse to parade some truly fantastic

are the only one left [waffle for a

can do it and that no-one else is 
strong enough to face the chal- 
lenge!. Conclude with something 
along the lines of "Have you the 
skill, wit and reflexes to do the

That s about it really. Any 
names you think of or any Jittte 
nuances can be incorporated into 
that little template. Brilliant, isn l 
it? But. fair play to em, the Zoo 
haw included a wee novella in the 

nual to pad it out a bit. Actu- 
ally, it is the manual. It's reason- 



able, but hardly Original. Elec- 
tronic Zoo claim this is the fastest 
two-way scrolling shoot- em-up 
game to date. They're not wrong, 
it does scroll brilliantly fast - the 
only problem is that most of the 
time you'd rather just sit there 
and fire and not have to worry 
about 'lying into things. 

The majority of the aliens, you 
see, have very static patterns 
moving in a formation about a 
fixed point, so the last thing you 
want to be doing is racing back 
and forth like the proverbial yo- 
yo. 

But if you like needless speed 
then this could be the thing for 
you. The gamepJay Is simplis- 
tic - most levels are played 
against the clock, giving you 
a set length of time to defeat 
a series of aliens, or you 
don't make it on to the next 
level - and as you defeat 
each one, the ship is powered

ically it li very simple,

rate of scrotllng without going up 
in smoke. There are very few 
sprites onscreen at once, there t 
only basic landscaping at top and 
bottom, and nothing in between 
to give you any idea of speed 
when you move off the edge of 
the landscape. 

This is often crucial as you may 
have to move off, turn around and 
come back on to attack, but If you 
don't know how fast you are 
going then it may all go tragically

t'f a scary old sport isn't it, 
boxing? Two men stand in a 
ring and smack each other 
about the head repeatedly with 
cushions mapped to their fists. 
They keep doing this until one of 
them falls over and then the one 
who didn't fair over hoJds his 
arms up in the all and trier to 
pretend that he Isn't about to 
drop dead. Very noble. 

So nobJe in fact that Afind- 
scape, producer* of quality spook 
software, have decided to give 
boning the old 4D treatment. 
Thus, you closet fist-mongers can 
beat seven belli out Of lome 
~"iocent vectors without alarm- 
elderly relatives. So let's bat- 
ten down the hatches and take a 
look.. 

OK, so the streenshots look a 
bit startling don't they? All than-

gies and funny shapes tt*d no par- 
allax scrolling or anything. It's 
enough to make your average 
beat-'em-up fan hide Under the 
sofa. Thais because vectors and 
polygons tend to imply (hushed 
whisperf strategy" and simula- 
tors '. Eek. Grown up games! 
There s no fun Ira that, matey, I m 
off. But before you run away to 
imetfting refreshingly brain 



rind out just why a bit of str 
and simulation can spice up your 
run-of-the-mill boxing game. 

To call 4D Sports Boxing a bolt- 
ing game is perhaps a smidge 
insulting. Hi more of a boning 
simulator. You control the cre- 
ation of up to ten boxers, build up 
their skills, and then step Into 
their shoes for the fights. 

The crux of the game it the 
Fighting, but emphasising the 
wrong elements of training will 
mean that your boxer isn't pre- 
pared for his opponent and will 
promptly get his head stomped 
good And proper. Not the healthi- 
est of positions to be in. 

So. you ve created a boxer 
using the remarkably simple Cre- 
ate a Barter ' section. Fairly obvi- 
ous. Vou now can enter your 



boxer - let i tali him Susan just 
for humorous effect - in an exhi- 
bit i an fight. An exhibition fight 
lets Susan slug it out with a rival 
of your choice. 

This has many .idvaniages. For 
one it allows you to gel uad b 
the controls. Secondly it lets you 
suss out the kind of tactics you 
can expect from your various 
opponents, and thirdly you can 
to get beaten int 
without affectlnr 
league rating. 

Once you ve mastered 1 the 
moves available, which is pretty 
easy, then you'll be ready to go 
for the "main event ", where you 
can get beaten (o death in a pro- 
fessional capacity, rather than as 
a rank amateur. 

Going back to th 
apparently you can ( 
variety of "showboat" a.. 
These include jigging up and 
down, goading your opponent 
and generally acting like a right 
Did prima donna. Unfortunately, 
these only work when you press 
the second Fire button on your 
Joystick. 

That is, of course, assuming 
you have two separate Fire but- 
tons, As most people will have

that you don t spend the wht

there s a proximity miter tf 
shows how far apart the box< 
are. When they're in punchjl 
distance, it turns yellow and yi 
can let fly with a f furry of blowi. 

Well, criticism time I think. The 
graphics are a bit iffy at times, as 
you can tell, and the boxers 
headi have a disturbing habit of 
switching from little circles to 
alarming cubes for no obvious 
reason. This doesn t affect the 
gameplay really, but It c<tn be dis- 

ortpntrfting. 

''other gnpe, being *

the game can be very slow. Not 
during the fights thank God. but 
selecting options often Jead* to

makes the management sections

the rather odd 3D approach may

you calf your t>tmt>r\ doing her

sygnosis have never 
been ones for beating 
about the bush. The lat- 
est example of this ii Avenger, a 
flight sim based on the F-14 and 
the F/A-1 S, While only a working 
title, the scenario ii all too clear - 
full Desert Storm, get those Iraqis 
out of Kuwait, torch the Revolu- 
tionary Guard and don't get 
killed. 

None of this "might be set in 
the Gulf. Possibly business for 
Ptygnosls, And after the ton 
notch work that Ed did on 
Armour-geddon, he was the natu- 
ral choice for a vector-based 
flight sim 

The game can be played in two 
ways - as single missions or as a 
campaign, but all will be based in 
one of the planes flown from a 
carrier. A campaign will be made 



With barely a pause for breath following 

the success of ArmouKaeddon for 

Psygnosis, Ed Scio is working on a new 

flight sim for them. Gamer travelled to 

the industrial North East to get 

mauled by a large labrador 



up of single mi is inns, but their 
result will affect the outcome of 
aided activities on the ground. 

Fat example, if you successfully 
My a mission to knock out a 
bridge, then enemy troop move- 
ments will be restricted making 
movement of, $ay, a tank convoy 
on the other side of the river a lot 
easier. 

The game will include a number

of mission typer that haven t been 
seen before on computer. No one 
could forget those stunning 
images recorded through the laser 
bomb-guiding system that stut- 
tered across our TV screens in the 
spring. Well, this feature has been 
introduced into Avenger. 

You can fly in either plane as 
the laser aimer, using you 
immense skill as a pilot to place 
that laser beam right where it 
should be so that your partner In 
the other plane can drop the 
bomb without worrying, or an f 
14 will be able to escort a tom- 
puter controlled FM-18 on a 
bombing mission over enemy 
territory. You could proba- 
bly do one over friendly 
territory ti well, but the 
chaps with the big 
moustaches 
might not 
be overly 
Impressed. 

Before all this 
begins though, Ed 
has plans to Include 
a line vector mission 
planning screen, 
where waypoi nts can 
be plotted for the 
autopilot to follow. 
Similar, I'm told, to the sys- 
tem used during the actual 
conflict / " 

Accuracy, in equipment / 
at least, has been a big / 
thing with Ed on this pro- 
ject. While accurately 
reproducing the boredom of , 
long distance flying is not 
always good on the payability 
front, Ed wanted as much of the 
real weaponry and cockpit equip- 
ment in there as possible. 

Both of the cockpit bitmaps 
represent reasonably accurately 
the real thing, but the real accu- 
racy is the equipment found for 
use in the F/A-1 B. This Includes a 
Velocity Search that picks up mov- 
ing objects and something called

a Track While Scan, which allows 
the radar to lock on to one mov- 
ing target while looking for oth- 
ers. Not ail of this Is available to 
the pilot of the F-14, because he 
has his own navigator to do all 
this for him. 

Graphically, while being vector 
based, the little touches will all 
be there. Fully movable flaps on 
both planes, animated airbrakes 
and arrester hooks and more 
built-in camera angles than you 
could shake a tefephoto lens at- 
This will make just flying to and 
fro an afmost cinematic experi- 
ence, with various pre-pro- 
grammed pans and swoops 
included to make you look more 
like Tom Cruise than Tom Cruise.

can't understand why no-one has 
dune It before because he reck- 
ons it is dead easy, ii the fully >

• > scrolling cockpit view. Previously 
flight simmers have only been 
able to flick between side view 
and front views, but now the 
player can actually turn the view 
from the cockpit as though he 
were turning his head, 

This makes flying and looking 
around far easier and a lot ten 
disorientating than flicking 
between screens. At the moment 
this only works in the horizontal 
pfane, but Ed is working on get- 
ting the pilot to look up as well. I 
hope he manages It. 
Weather features like light- 
i ning r rain, and thunder will all be 

b^ implemented giving the 

~V game's atmosphere a real 
i boost, Imagine flying 
^L through a thunderstorm at 
night on the way to 
bomb a very Impor- 
tant target over the 
border - it would be 
fantastic. Or flying by 
radar because of the poor 
visibility even at low level. 

There will aiso 
be a completely 
accurate star map - 
no use far navigat- 
ing unless you are 
really clever, but if 
you ever have a free 
moment you can try 
and figure out what

broad daylight to pitch black in 
one fell palette change for Ed. 

No, from broad daylight to 
pitch black takes about six palette 
changes, so you can take off just 
before dawn In true Desert Storm 
style to wake up Saddam with a 
big missile. 

Each object will have its own 
sound, which wiJI react to where 
the player's view it from. For 
example, if an outside view is 
taken of the F-14 flying past the 
camera, the sound will grow 
louder to climax in a big woosh as 
it rooms past and gently fades 
away into the distance. 

The same effect will be found 
with missiles. Even the cockpit 
wind noise, I'm told, is accurate. 
Not that I could distinguish cock- 
pit wind noise from an elephant s 
fart, but the thought counts, and 
it does sound different to the 
engine noise in the cockpit. The 
only place where accuracy does 
take a dive ii the number of 
enemy planes in the game. If Ed 




had stayed true to real life there 
would have been approximately 
three Iraqi jets. So for the sake 
of gameplay, ie having some, a 
few more have been added. Ail 
of the planes that flew over the 
border In the real war won't 
have done, so that you will be 
able to fly against the MiG-29s 
with the Soviet-trained pilots, or 
the French Mirages with Iraqi- 
trained pilots. 

Don't make the mistake of 
thinking that this is the next 
Birds of Prey - it isn't, The accu- 
racy is there, but the gameplay 
has been enhanced to make it 
feel like a game - action and 
adventure, that kind of thing - 
but not to the extent where it 
all gets repetitive in that F-15 II 
kind of way. 

When it appears in early 
March l°92 Avenger, or what- 
ever it ends up being called, will 
become the definitive "fun" 
flight slm. Groovy.

ELSPA Chart 



Blimey! Nine new entries, 
twelve climbers and nine 
taller*, but the big news is 
that the entire top five is 
made up of full price titles, 
air of which are Gamer 
Golds (have we got taste or 
what?). And there are only 
three budget titles in the 
whole top ten. Lotus II, at 
number one, has obviously 
found the stamina to main- 
tain its climb up the chart, 
with Mega-lo-Mania not far 
behind. 

But there are still a lot of 
big titles waiting in the 
wings to make a huge entry 
- First Samurai, Pit Fighter 
and Formula One Grand 
Prix for example, and of 
course. Populous II, the 
sane man's tip-fort he- top 
this Christmas. Don't dis- 
count Cliff Richard though, 
he could do it. Not only 
that, hut Psygnosis have 
got some three or four titles 
waiting in the wings, and 
one of them will surely do 
the business, won t it? 

The top quality of Jimmy 
White s Snooker ensures 
that it still hangs in there 
some three months after its

needs for a boost is a data 
dish that allows you to 
drink a lot and leer at 
women in pubs. That would 
he good.

Grwever exciting it may be. 
Flying is. for most of us, 
limited to seat 1 OB on a 
ir-oW airtiner carrying us to our 
summer holiday resort 

At a cost of £5,000, give or ta*e a 
grand, tearing to Hy even the smaller 
fi*ed-wing aircraft is financially out of 
reach of many and a trip into a mulo- 
million pound Timurator used by air- 
line! ii limited to spotty little kicfi writ- 
ing to Jlm'tl Fix It or computer 
pr ogrammers on the Krypton Factor. 

This U, perhaps, why flight simS on 
home computers are so popular. The 
Amiga has already seen to fair share 
though, with the exception of 
ProFlight, they are little more than 
shoot- em-ups based on fast military 
jds. 

Serious fliers have realty been lim- 
ited to trips in a single-engined Cessna. 
courtesy of Flight Simulator 2. It used 
to be the best, but is rather sluggish 
compared to other software and des- 
perately needs updating. 

German software house Thai ion 
have rolled out what can only be 
described as the best yet In Amiga sim- 
ulation Written by a Luftwaffe pilot, 
A320 Airbus puts you in the left-hand 
seat of a modern fly-by-wire jet or the 
same name. 

Just like the guy that flew you to 
Corfu, it starts with a visit to flight brief- 
ing, A simple flight plan must be filled 
with details of the route, number of 
passengers [PAX], fuel weight ,ind 
rreight. The latest weather at the desti- 
nation is printed. 

During flight, the weather can dete- 
riorate and the odd emergency means 
that you need to have a diversion air- 
port planned, This happens mainly at 
ihe higher kvels of the simulation. 

Unlike other nm$, the view is only 
from the Captain's side of the plane 
and so you only use the left side of the 
instrument panel and windscreen. The 
via* car be moved about chough, so 

20 ( CAk'tld ? Ubriury mi 




you can look to the left or right of the 
plane 

There isn't an option 
to look diagonally 
across out of the 
First Officer's win- 
dow which seems 
a little strange. 
With it being an air- 
liner, there is no need 
tor a rear view. 

Control is split between the key- 
board and mouse or joystick. The 
mouse appeared to give the best 
results but it's probably one of those 
things that's down to an individual's 
choice. The keyboard commands are 
easy to remember and well placed. 

The medrum-sired airliner has one 
engine on each wing. They have to be 
started separately and ortfe the power 
ht»s stopped at 1 7 per cent they are 




increased together to get the plane 
rolling forward. 

ft starts with the place sitting on the 
nearest taxiway to the runway thresh- 
old, and so it's iimply a case of turning 
on to the strip and straightening up on

to the centreline before banging the 
power up for take off. 

Once the speed has reached 
about 1 50 knots you should be able 
to get airborne. Lift the gear and 
you're on your way. It's as simple as 

that- nearly. 

Finding the destination demands 
the use of genuine Jeppesen naviga- 
tion charts, which are supplied in the 
box. Radio frequencies for beacons 
■ilong the route must be entered into 
the navigation system and should be 
overflown. 

With no instructions from air traffic 
control, they are a necessity unless 
the plane is to be flown around in Lir 
cuits at one aerodrome. Actually, this 
isn't too much or a bad idea until you 
get Ihe hang of things. 

They say what goes up must come 
down and so once overhead ihe air- 
field you have to prepare to get the 
plane safely onto the ground. The 
instrument landing system, known 
simply as IL5, is an important piece or 
equipment Tor tries, bit of the flight. 

Used for guiding aircraft towards 
the runway they, like beacons, trans- 
mit on cwtain frequencies. These can

All major airfields from Southern

rect places. So. for example, if you lift 
from Frankfurt Main, within a minute or 
two you'll be flying over the Rhine. In

has almost complete approach H§nt- 
frtrj .he Exception is VASI liyMS which 
are used by pilots making visual land

The only other niggle is that the 
runway markings are not included, but 
this r, a minor compLunt and does Utile 
to spoil ihe simulatmn, Maybe they can 
be added in future versions 

The question Twftat else can you do 
other than fly around?" was asked 
more than once In the office. 
The answer js: no! a lot. While it 
has plenty of interesting features, 
A320 Is not intended as a act'en- 
packed game. This is one *o; those 
wanting to see what flying is really 'ike. 

As an indication of its realism, AJ20 
Airbus has already been endorsed by 
Airbus Industrie 1 ; as Che most re 
simulator for home computers, and 
Thallon are being supported by 
Lufthansa, who will sup; »ly pilots wings

Upgrades to the program are 
already on the cards and will be avail- 
able fur ,i small price as each is

updates to charts at trade price. 

At the end of the day, smooth

Dear Gamer. 

Its nice to see a separate games section in your maga- 
zine, as being a "gentleman of leisure' (ie. retired!) I 
have recently discovered the wonderful world of com- 
puter games as a hobby. So I was wondering if you 
could help explain your ratings system to me, as I'm 
not at all familiar with how magazines score computer 
games. 

As far as I can tell, the overall percentage hat no 
relation to the individual marks out of five. Just what 
do each of the scores mean? 
Ernest Wood, Soirthpeti 

Ihis letter wai sent to our colleagues at ST Gamer. We feel ih$ point it 
makes applies equally to Amiga Gomer, so to clarify matters we've put 
together ififi rather handy guide to the eerie world of rta Gomer Gong,' 



The overall percentage is not connected to the 
Gamer Gongs. If that were the case, then a game 
could get a high mark simply because it had excel- 
lent sound and graphics. So to keep things fair, the 
overall percentage is an all-round summary of the 
game, whth vision, audio, play ability and addiction 
all taken into consideration. 

For each review, the Gamer team put their heads 
together (not a pretty sight with Biffaj and decide 
just what percentage the game deserves, thus each 
game gets a completely objective »nd balanced 
review. 




Not very good at all. 
Below average. 




A respectable amount 
Middle ground. 




Bordering on excellent. 
Better than most. 



Hope that sorts out the confusion! 



Are we cheating? 



The business! Something 
very special indeed. 



A young gentleman who identifies himself oniy as "Chris" from Reading accuses us of 
cheating by reviewing unfinished software. His proof, it would seem, is ibe fact that 
we awarded Terminator 2 only 40 per cent while another magazine gave it a rather 
generous 63 per cent. 

He also rites the Thunderhawk 'incident' from 5T Gamer where we marked the 
game up after the review because changes were made to the program when the 

game hit the shelves. He demands a response, and 
never ones to hack down, we're prepared to 
explain. 

Firstly, we would never review 'unfinished" soft- 
ware. What we sometimes have tP do, aj do 
many other magazines, is review "pre-produc- 
tion" versions of a game, This is when the soft- 
ware houses send us the game, without all the 
fancy packaging and frills, but with the game intact so the 
review can be published at the same ome as the game Is released. 
If we had to wait for every game to be tarted up and put in a big box. 
you'd probably have bought the game by the time you read 1 the review. This is not 
cheating, as it is done with (he permission of the software houses who send us the 
disks for "review purposes". 

Nor is it confined to Gamer. FWt any exclusive review from any computer maga- 
zine and it's almost guaranteed to have been reviewed torn the pre-production ver- 
sion, It wouldn't be exclusive if the game was afready released, would it? 

Mow to answer Chris' comments, on Terminator 2 and Thunderhaw*. Firstly, the 
version of Terminator 2 we reviewed was in Tact tfie fully finished, boxed product 
complete with T-shirt and everything. We did not mart it down because we didn't see 

Ftbruiry t»9S 




tfie finished game, hut rather because we thought it was crap. That's what a review n 
- a matter of opinion. Therefore, another magazine may have liked it - but we didm 
You have to decide whose opinion you value mosi. 

The Thuncterhawk incident was one of those errors that happens in the fast-mov- 
ing world of publishing. What had happened was that we were given a pre-produc- 
tion copy to review, by Core Design, and this version did not contain a training 
option. 

We felt that this spiled an otherwise good game and marked it accordingly. When 
Core released the game, they included a training option. We were informed of this 
and we changed the mark accordingly. We were 
all happy with this arrangement. No big deal, 

Surely it is better to acknowledge our mis- 
takes and let you, the punter, know if we 
change our minds or make an omisswin. than i 
60 be wimps and htde our errors? So yes, we 
do review pre-production software, but 
then so does every other games' magazine 
in the world and if we didn't then all the 
magazines would be hopelessly out-of- 
date. We have to review games before they are 
released so that the reviews appear in time for the release 
maybe preventing you from buying a duff game, and steering you towards 
the ones to look out for. 

We're sorry you feel cheated by this system, Chns, but we're sure you'd father hear 
about the games e<ir ly, than have to wart an extra two months for the same review of 
the 'm the shops' version. Any games mag would tell you the same.

Lite as a triumphant: adventurer 
was a happy one for Hegor. 
After the victory over hJs evil 
Mfier Netron, avenging [tie murder erf 
ts father, he was in line for the throne. 

The nation's eiders were a tad con- 
owned about this possibility - after all. 
fnekng a decent mixture of brains and 
»awn these days is difficult, one gener- 
*f comes without the other and. well, 
Hegor was best known for his brawn. 
•tot exactly royal material, therefore, the 
eiders paid him off with a skip-load of 
goto and sent him away to get smashed 
tr the next few months . 

He spent the time dNnkmg a lot and 
Donng the Inhabitants of the natron' j 
tt w ns with tales of how he defeated 
Vecron But life as an ex-trmmphant 
adventurer was not quite so happy 
I spme gossipy amazon ruined 
Hegor's reputation by telling him that 
Severn had been resurrected, things 
~M to be done. How could Hegor blag 
or two of mead in the evenings if 
- ; story had been discredited? How 
could he hold his face up in public 
again? How could he get free silk under- 
pants from the girl in "Ve Oide Soskke 
Snoppe' if she couldn't fancy him any 
*nore? 

He knew what he had to do. He had 
as get kitted" out. tooled up and ihrow 
o fru gauntlet - NJecron must be 
defeated, 

It is up to you to control Hegor 
trough the sw domains of this game, ft 
::arts in the forest as Hegor tries to 
defeat werewolves, Neanderthals and 




Any mm with (hu many ribi deserves la be killed 



ogres, then progresses through the 
caves under the village, through the vil- 
lage itself, into the caifle, down into 
the dungeon, then finally into Necron's 
temple. 

The problem is that Hegor begins 
with no weapons whatsoever, meaning 
that the first forest involves him bashing 
a; many people as possible with his 
bare hands so that he tan get together 
enough gctfd and stuff to make himself 
slightly harder. 

The screen layout of the forest is a li- 
fe weird and lakes some getting used 
to. Imagine it as a maze made up of a 
number of interlinked paths at right 
angles to each other. The path you are 
currently on is displayed from the side 
so that you can dearly see the action as 
you roll and punch your way to free- 
dom, wrth the connecting paths going 
into or coming out of the screen, Ini- 




tially, as you move on to another path, it 
is a Irttle disorientating - trying to re- 
establish which way you are facing and 
so on - but a compass and a bit of map- 
ping paper will see you rrght. 

The gameplay on this level is very 
simple. Basically, Just avoiding being 
killed by some very thick adversaries. But 
as you progress through the levels the 
game expands into more than Just a 
beat-'ermjp. requiring you to solve puz- 
zles to find secret doors and reveaf 
traps. 

For example, In the castle you are 
required to pull chains, but not to flush 
out ifte bad guys. Lfsualfy they will 1 be in 
a group of three which must be pulled 
m the right order to open the door to 
the next room. Something else to watch 
out for are hidden floor panels which 
will often counteract the effect of the 
chains you have just puiled, frequently 
sending you to oblivion. 

As you move into the dungeon you 
realise that the enemies are beginning 
to get a lot harder. For the first time you 
will come face to face with the undead 
They can be knocked down for a while 
but they are completely unkiflable, the 
point being that they are already dead 
You really have to work fast on those 
switches with these attractively dressed 
chaps around. 

Hegor, once he has collected them,

can use different items to help him with 
his quest. On top of all the usual axes, 
potions and weapons there are things 
like grappling hooks, which can be used 
to hoist you out or tricky situations. Nat- 
urally tf*ere will be the odd shop around 
the place, usualfy in the most bizarre of 
locations, but only if you've remem- 
bered to collect all the gold you can will 
they be of any use to you. 

Graphically the backgrounds are well 
up to standard", particularly in the latter 
dungeon and temple levels The sprites 
usuaJly disintegrate and bleed in a comic 
book gore kind of way, and that comic 
book feel is most clearly demonstrated 
by Hegor himself, looking like some- 
thing straight from the pages of the 
Beano as he rolls and tumbles his way 
about. 

A typical Psygnosis tune is in evi- 
dence, ve«y reminiscent of castfes and 
dungeons and heros and stuff. The 
effects, (hough not brilliant, arejust 
tough enough to make you think that 
that enemies probably do artu&Jly hurt 
you. 

Ail told, it adds up to a very playable 
package continuing In (he hallowed tra- 
dition of the original Barbarian, and 
goes a little beyond the traditional beat- 
em-up gameplay to provide extra 
depth. Coupled with the difficulty level it 
makes it quite a challenge. Pretty damn 
good,

her birthday But today was 
the day that Ihanatos decked to rise 
from his 'pit of anguish", depart his 
prison of torment arid take revenge for 
whoever had trapped him in thli inter- 
minable prison. He deserved it though - 
he was officially classed as evil. 

The rulers of Honshu, where Lueanna 
lived, were the nice chaps who had put 
him away, and it was them that 
Thanatos. or Thanny for short was after. 
To cut a long story short one full erf 
needless long words anef sentences |see 
manuaif, Thanny kidnaps Lueanna and 
intenefs to use her Rife force to feed hiss 
own and ultimately destroy Honshu. 
Leander Is the palace guard who's been 
bonking Lueanna on the quiet. They 
both reckon it g undying tow. but listen 
to an old hand, it u pure lust. 

The emperor summoned Leander 
and told h»m he knew about the illicit 
trysts in the garden but would forgive 
htm if he rescued her. Better to have a 
live shotgun wedding than a dead 
daughter. Assuming, of course, that 
Leander could manage it. 

Well it sure sounds like a beat-'emup 
to me. and. gosh, I'd tie right The game 
Is made up of three worlds each consist- 
ing of four levels, where a single quest 
has to be completed, This will usually 
involve collecting something from one 
end of the level and trekking back to the 
exit point at the other end with it.

and mapping before they can be con- 
quered with ease on a regular basis. 

The game is populated by numerous 
assorted creatures, from efres to drag- 
ons to huge spiders that would put me 
willies up any self-respecting arachno- 
phobe, These can be slain with a few 
swipes or the sword but they are cun- 
ning little devils, and it takes a tot of 
care, to get away without being hit at 
least once as you try and kill them 

Fortunately though, as you leap and 
bound across the graphically superb 
backgrounds, there will be a load of 
chests and trunks littered around, A few 
sword swipes will open these to reveal 



some kind of bonus, be it money, points 
or armour improvements. 

These armour improvements will tafce 
you to the next armour strength level. 
Von begin on purple armour which only 
takes one hit point - take a hit and you 
die. Green provides two hit points, with 
the protection climbing one hit point 
per level through blue, silver, gold and 
finally blart at ax hit points. 

rhe money can be used in the shops 
that you will occasionally stumble into. 
You could Wow it all on a huge weapon 
but it fs worth thinking about building 
up your armour first - you stand more 
chance of getting further the stronger 
your armour is. 

Rune bombs can be bought In the 
shops too, or collected from the chests. 
These are essential because if you make 
the mistake oF not picking up something 
that comes out of a chest, after a short 
period of time it will turn into a skull. 

If this is accidentally collected, the 
ethereal presence of Thanatos wil

appear, with thunder and lightning all 
about. Only rune bombs stand a chance 
of thwarting him, but It wiH take six hi 
to get nd of the ugfy little Weetter. 

li n rainy stow-paced initially with M 
tic Frantic action - the emphasis is on 
exploration, and accuracy with the joy- 
stick as you try for the fifth time to catch 
that moving platform. Skill with thr- 
sword is crucial though - you won't be 
able to get away with autofire in Lean- 
der A far more tiioughtful game than 
some. 

It takes on a medieval atmosphere 
almost as soon as you enter the first 
world. The graphics have an almost 
musty feel about them that puts you 
right back m the golden age of virgins 
and dragons. 

The background coJour-siitting and all 
that techy stuff is excellent and some of 
the foreground stuff occasionally beats 
First Samurai, but there Isn't enough 
variety to do this on a permanent basd. 

The sound is by a team led by one 
Jon Burton (apparently he's quite 
famous for this kind of thing), with a 
typically spooky Psygnosis tune, and vio 
lent effects that, believe me, go some 
way to bringing out the armoured 
agressor in all of us. 

it is definitely a serious beat-'em-up. 
well implemented, quite gorgeous to 
look at, and a treat for the ears. Pretty

Of course, what It all boils down to 
is a scrolling platform game with a lib- 
eral sprinkling of beat-'em-up. it's the 
sort of gamedyle that's currently setting 
the consoles alight, so it's likely that 
we'll see quite 3 lot of it in the future, 
LucMy for Core, woffcNId is the first of 
these games out of the 
proverbial gate, so they 
could be on to a winner 
here. 

And with presentation 
like this,, it's not surprising. 
The graphics are excellent. 
Loads and loads of detail, 
topped off with some of 
the swishiest parallax you'll 



ever see. Add some decidedly yukky 
mutants to beat up and you've got a 
game that's just the thing to stick two 
fingers up at the Megadri'.-t; contin- 
gency. 

The twist here is that once your 
energy reaches 75 per cent or higher, a

noi anly twice as 'ard <u before, but you 

can now project magic energy as 

well as relying on physical prowess 

to defeat your opponents 

Of to put it another way, you 
can fire rather than just punch. The 
bullets are, as always, upgradable 
and vary from three-way fire to 
heat seekers No surprises in that 
department, then. 

So, wolfchiicf is a visually impres- 
sive, reasonably playable console 
beater. If you need any persuasion 
(hen 111 tell you that it was written 
by the bloke responsible for 
Switchblade. 

Muff said, It lacks that extra depth 
that it needs to get the coveted Gamer 
Gold but it loofcs. sounds, smells, tastes 
and feels like a "quality game". Surely 
that must count for something?

fter almost five years of 

development and specula- 
tion, a finished version of 
Argonaut Software's Buds of Prey 
(BOP) finally landed on my desk today 
Surprisingly enough, there were no 
owls hooting, horses eating each 
other, and all that stuff you normally 
expect when something long awaited 
comes to pass - so I just booted up. 

BOP was coded by Jm San and his 
team, from whence came StargNder 2, 
one of the all-time Amiga classics. It 
offers a choice of squtilions of different 
aircraft depending on whether you 
decide to be a "good' guy or a "bud 1 
guy, it flies smoothly considering how 
many other pSartes the computer corn 
trols at the same time, and it makes the 
tea when you get tired of carpet-tomb- 
ing little villages in South East Asia. 

How does it play? Wen. it's a bit like 
every flight game you ever wanted, 
but couldn't be bothered with because 
they're all just boring variations on the 
theme of "how can we make lots of 
money from cunning flight algo- 
rithms?*. BOP is a great game, not a 
great simulation so members of the 
iociety for the Appreciation of Differen- 
tial Calculus [SAD.f needn't buy it. 

The action is set in a fictional land- 
scape of land, sea, and islands, bur, all 
the aircraft are real. You can take off 
from a main airbase in a B-Sl or ski- 
jump from HMS Invincible in a Harner, 
and if you get bored wrth 'good* guy 
planes, it's easy to swap sides and fry in 
a Mig-29 or Backfire bomber 

After the manual protection is over 
(you have to answer a question on the 
technical details Of an aircraft or mis- 
sile] you jump to the pilot screen. Here 
you can load and save pilots, or create 
new ones, then it's time to get down 
to business. 

First you select what sort of mission 
to fly. There are twelve to choose from, 
including the unusual options to drop 
parachutists or supplies, and test fty the 
X-1 5 or Mig29. Next comes the all- 
important choice of home base. 

There are five of these for each side 
[Blue and Red - but it's hardly a coinci-

dence they made the Soviets the Red

carriers. Blue carriers are the Nimitz 
and Invincible, Red carriers; are the Kiev 
and Minsk, but Russian carrier pilots are 
restricted to a choice of one aircraft 
the Forger, as it's the only carrier- 
home, fixed-wing plane the Russians 
havegoL 

If you go for a landhased pilot, your 
choice is far greater, There's a Tupoiev 
Bear bomber, a Hercules, and you can 
even fly a 747. The more obscure air- 
craft Include the F-20, the SR-71 Black- 
bird reconnaissance plane, and the 



Su-25 Frogfoot [Russia's equivalent of 
the A 10 tank buster). There's enough 
variety of missions and aircraft to grve 
BOP the best long-term interest appeal 
of any flight game I've ever seen. 

All aircraft are represented accu- 
rately in 3D. and they all fly more or 
less differently, Realism hasn't been 
insisted on, and where two aircraft we 
fairly similar you can, for example, find 
it difficult to oefieve you're in an F- 1 f> 
rather than die Mirage in which you 
flew the last mission. 

In more exireme cases, though, the 
feel of a Hercules is vastty different to

If you haven't tinkered with the sce-

Which base you selected will have 
determined what side you're on, but 
once the first mission is over you can By

must always remember, however, is 
that "your side" and "their side' are

The other outside views are of you

mented, eight angles and a satellite 
overview, but they add a lot to the 
atmosphere because every plane has an 
identical cockpit layout, and only by 
popping out for a quick look is it possi- 
ble to spot the differences between 
planes. I particularly liked the view of

f et fdks, Us thai tallery Hum of lh* month again and this month 
" we ve had a really good selection of pictures sent in. 

The tint is called Judge Anderson and it* by leftrey Miranda. As 
y(J u might have guessed its a picture of that ftoow PSI Judge from the 
pages of 20O0AO - well done leffrey 

The n«l budding Picasso it a Mr W KeiHng who hat drawn quite * tew 
excellent pictures, two ol which we thought were particularly good. The first, 
picture it entitled The W* and looks really sinister in those da* colours. 
It sent thiveri down my spine, I tan tell y&U- 

The second picture b of old Amle Schwarzenegger in a Ttrmmatar2pmt. 
Both pictures are of excellent qualify - top marks Mr (telling 

Deciding the winner of this month's Gallery was ™y, W^M^t 
indeed but we got there in the end In second place it Mr R A Ralph with 
his excellent fantasy pictures entitled Tblei The detail on this one is abso- 
lutely stunning. . . __, M - 

But the winner is Lee Martin, with hit brilliant pcrtrtrt of Madowa Done 
in hires this picture is really one to behold Lee sent ir* quite » few pictures 
_ Madonnas the best, but b closely WkmA by nil picture Tfw C* not of 
the feline variety, but of Prince's e*-dancer 

incidentally, Lee wins a copy c< Electronic Art's Deluxe Paint IV and a 
framed copy ol his winning picture, so that he can hang rt on hit wall and 
imprest all his thuml.

normally write letters if I can get out of Ihem 
fpxefutty, but on thii occasion I do it happily. I was 

t*ced by the very expensive pricing in thii country to 

oak elsewhere for hardware and 1 eventually ordered 

■ goods from the USA (Adspeed/AdRam£4Q' and a 

Quantum 52Mb lhard drive). I also ordered some 

b from the UK (PodscatfFechosoundA/idi) plus some 

The US orders went very wrong. The Quantum 
money never got to the suppliers and the retailers of 
t»*e other two board! have not supplied the goods 
(money sent 31/8/91 arid definitely received in the 
JS), However being a regular reader of your magazine I 
wrote to three of your advertisers, two big and one 
snail (by comparison). 

The onfy firm to reply was Applied Research Kernel. 
The owners haw been terrific - they wrote gMng firrn 
quotes and when I phoned they were mare than help- 
ful. They knew their subject throughout and if unsure 
of something found out for me quickly. 

I feel that such good service deserves recognition 
especially if your overseas readers wish to purchase 
goods and do not know who to trust, I therefore wish 
you to publish this letter so is many of your readers as 
possible get the information I had to find out for 
Tiyseff. As you can see the US has failed me badly, so in 
hiture I'll be dealing with ARK, 

By the way I own an Amiga 500 expanded' with a 
-ard drive, genlock, colour Vidi, colour printer, 
TechnDsound, four megs of RAM plus 1 meg chip, 
colour monitor, Podscat (I can't draw). I am into DTV, 
programming and so an. Are you interested in any- 
thing in the way of articles from the bottom of the 
worid? 
K H Antoine, Brisbane, Australia 

I guess that companies In the USA are just the same 
as anywhere else - some are good and some bad , 

Sony to hark back to my "small Is better" crusade 
but your experience seems to be the proverbial 
proof of the pudding. 

As for being interested in articles from Australia, 
Stevie (the new editor) tells me he will consider 
publishing work from anywhere as long as it's good,

Isitdtf/osAmiga? 

One of your readers asks, it other Amiga owners have 
experienced slow service Irom Commodore. You bet I 

have! 

I bought an Amiga 500 in May. It broke down after 
five weeks, and the national repair centre took six 
weeks to return it. Two days later it broke down again, 
and has now been away for another three weeks, with 
no sign of returning. 1 have seen the machine for only 
seven of the 16 weeks since I bought it. My letters to 



the centre have not resulted in any meaningful 
response. 

Needless to say, my initial enthusiasm lor the Amiga 
has evaporated, and my opinion of Commodore has 
taken a nosedive. I am on the point of writing off the 
Amiga as an expensive mistake. And of course, I will 
hardly be encouraging anyone else to buy an Amiga. 

So whether or not the warranty service is operated 
by Commodore or by an anent, it cannot be in their 
interests to be associated with such poor service.

After sales disservice! 



First to praise your magazine, it is excellent, easily the most informative, incisive, 
witty and most of all helpful. 1 have been reading and enjoying it since issue one 
{Enough - Ed), 

My setup is as follows: Amiga 1 500, TV with Scan and a Star 24/1 printer. 
Next on the shopping list is a hard drive. 

This is not your problem really but my gripes with Commodore and FMG. I 
bought my 1 500 in April '91 and sent my registration card to FMC as instructed. 
In May I moved and had all mail forwarded, but nothing arrived, On the 21 
August, 1991 I wrote to FMG asking abut the Customer Care pack and card. 

A week later I phoned FMC and was given a number for Commodore, who 
told me to phone FMC. I told tfiem that I just had and been given this number. 
After speaking to Marketing, I was told thai the Customer Care pack was 
stopped but that something woutd be in the post within a week. One week later 
I phoned the same penan at Commodore and was told to wait one more week. 

Well, not a sausage from Commodore, instead on 9 October I received a letter 
from FMG telling me what I already knew, that the Customer Care pack was 
stopped, but Still nothing about the wonderful Customer Care card, 

I phoned FMG on the 1 1 October and waii told that the Care Card was also 
stopped "but let me transfer you to Julie". AHer waiting for an expensive five 
minutes my patience ran out and this letter took hold. 

My gripe is this - after being promised both a Customer Care card and 
Customer Care pack by the literature that accompanied my lovely computer, 
both Commodore and FMG had to be pushed to reveal anything. I still do not 



'Si 




know if my computer is registered and I have heard / »-(, - "~ J 

nothing about the extended warranty that I *^^-j J f »-* .""J 
requested, ^ 

Thank you for reading this (if you did) and for the gnat 
magazine, 
M Palmer, Melton, Mowbray 

What do you meain Thank you for reading this (if you did)'! - I read every 
letter sent to me and I even read some of them twicel 

Listen, the Customer Care pack Is no great shakes I got one when I bought 
my A2O0O a year and a half ago. It's basically an AS plastic folder packed with 
adverts and order forms for other Commodore bits and bobs. 

The mysterious Customer Owe card is a credit card sized bit of plastk with 
the date you bought your machine etched onto it It doesn't work in a cash 
machine, but it does get ice off your windscreen. 

It seems a shame that you got such a runaround for something that Isn't 
really worth the bother. My guess Is that your machine was shipped with an 
old warranty card, hence the references to Customer Care gumph- 

The important thing is to make sure your machine It registered. I think you 
can rest assured that It is if you have had correspondence from FMG. 

I'm surprised that you haven't had any word back about your extended 
warranty. If your payment has been banked, I would contact FMG to find out 
what Is going on. If not, send another form in.

Programming pointers 

l would like to learn computer programming in Cobd on my Amiga, It must 
be possible. The Amiga is capable of anything, or so they say Can you help 
rtm on thii matter - what do I need, where can 1 gel the equipment and how 
much roughty will it cost? 

I've tried asking several companies who do courses in Cobol programming, 
out all they seem to do is try and sell me an IBM-compatible Amstrad com- 
puter and course work for hundreds or even thousands of pounds, 

I would appreciate any advice that yoo can give me. 
A 5 Jobe, Portsmouth 

I've published letters like this before, asking for help, with no response. 

Com* on guys W gals, Is there a PD version of Oobol hiding out there? 

The first person to locate and send me one will get a prize. There, can't 
say fairer than that. 



chanted about the Amiga. But how do you know 
how good it is if you have only had one for seven 
*eeks? 

Take a look through the rest of this issue of Amiga 
Carpifiing. The Amiga really is a great machine! 

The fact that FMG are getting into such a men 
fuddle again and again means that Commodore 
really do have to take some action, In my opinion at 
least. 

I think the time has come for Commodore to 
issue some sort of statement. If anyone from FMG 
or Commodore who reads this page wants to step 
out and defend the national repair centre please 
write in. I can feel an ESP Special coming on... 

Hard and fast 

As one of the rapidly growing number of Amiga hard 
drive owners, I totally endorse the contents of Stein 
Erik Giske's letter in the November issue of Amiga 
Computing. 

I feel that it is the responsibility of your magazine 
to inform potential buyers if a piece of software tan 
be Installed on a hard drive, and if it is compatible 
with faster processors like the 680 JO. 

Contrary to what is commonly stated In the 
monthly magazine*, a iargi proportion of Amiga 
games can be installed on a hard drive. 

Most adventures and simulations (with the excep- 
tion of F19 Stealth Fighter) are hard drive compati- 
ble, and, in general, it is only arcade type games that 



still have irritating on-disk 

protection. 

Let me say that certain 
companies are particularly 
guilty of using Dn-disk pro- 
tection and therefore are 
treating Amiga users like chil- 
dren try that in the PC mar- 
ket or In the USA and see 
how many sales there are! 

All the users I know - 
including myself - will not 
buy software from these com- 
panies, as loading from flop- 
pies is a real pain if you have 
an alternative Also, if soft- 
ware has heavy on-disk pro- 
lection then the AmigaDas 
guide-lines are bypassed, and 
the software is not compatible with faster proces- 
sors like the 68030. 

So please, let us serious users of our favourite 
machine know in your reviews if software has on or 
off disk protection, and rl it can be installed on a 
hard drive. Surely you don't have to be informed by 
the software company if the product is hard drive 
compatible - as you state in your reply to Mr dike's 
letter - you can easily try for yourself! 
I Mackenzie, London, 

What a bizarre suggestion, that most Amiga 
owners who play arcade and action games might 
be children! 

Games companies put protection on their 
product to protect their Investment, not to 
Inconvenience hard disk owners, 

Manual protection Is an alternative, but with a 
little time virtually any manual system can be 
beaten. Books can be copied, charts redrawn and 
even code wheels "pirated" 

The versions of software we get in to review 
are typically fully functional, apart from the pro- 
tection which Is 5 till being added. 

It is for this reason that we can't tell people If 
games are hard disk friendly or not. If we used 
our own experience, every game released in the 
last three months would be hard disk compati- 
ble! 

Daniel and Eddie are sticking by their tried 
and tested line: "If games companies tell us, we 
will tell the readers". 



Play it again, maS 



I went into the local newsagents today and while 
baking on the magazine rack, my eye was caught 
by yaur magazine Amiga Computing. 

It was the first time that it has been stocked so I 
bought a copy. When I got homE I read it from 
cover to cover and was very impressed. Then I 
decided to try out the disk, CoverDisk 24. 

I played the Tune of the Month, and was Even 
more impressed, as Toccata is one of my many 
lavourite pieces of classical music. I briefly loaded 
the machrne code option, then I deeded to bad in 
the utilities. 

I started off with Imp! Oder and worked my way 
round it lor later use. I then loaded SoundStudio 
and loaded in one of the samples included called 
Bogey, which was a sample of Humphrey Fiogart 
from one of his films which I don't particular!) 1 like. 



The sample said "I stick my neck out lor nobody", 
but when 1 got round to reversing the sample, I 
played it and it turned out to say something very 
rude. 

This is one edition of any magazine that mildly 
shocked me. But don't worry I will be buying the 
magazine again (even more if this gets printed}. 
D Boyce, Leicester 

I have omitted to publish what you thought 
Bogey said backwards, for obvious reasons! 

Any reader with a curious disposition, a copy of 
any decent tracker and a very fertile Imagination 
Is welcome to try this experiment. 

You might also like to try reading the entire 
magazine backwards - you can pick up the sublim- 
inal satanic messages much more easily that way! 



Christmas turkeys

Why oh why is the structure of my chromosomes 

[ha!, joke}, 

But seriously, can you answer a couple of little ques- 
tions about the Amiga? Everyone goes on about the 
Amiga being the only home computer with the ability 
to multitask. Now I'm not putting it down - I've 
owned one for three years and wouldn't part with it - 
but is it not a fad that true multitasking can onfy occur 
on a machine when there are as many processors as 



Progress at any 
cost? 

I read with Interest the upgrading of the Amiga 
to the AS OOP, But at what cost to us 512k A50D 
owners? Software is already becoming I meg 
only due to the future ASO0 being 1 meg stan- 
dard. 

I've already got a few CoverOisks which I've 
never seen. Yes I know I must upgrade and I 
know it's cheap, but how will the updated 
A5O0P affect software? 

Don't get me wrong, I think rl's good news 
that Commodore are still showing the way but 
it took me two years to save the money for my 
A500 and months to buy my first game, only 
being content with your CoverDisks eq keep me 
going {which are fantastic} but I hope we don't 
gel forgotten over the next few years. 

I wrote to Commodore about the price of the 
A50O I paid £41 1, of which £26 ol this was for 
the games pack which I found is given out free 
by other shops. Why was I charged for this can 
you tell me as Commodore did not reply? Can 
you confirm what I think, that I was ripped olf? 
C Cocke, Part Talbot, Wales 

There are very few SI 2k Amlgas around these 
days, After all. It costs less than a good game 
to get a SI 2k expansion complete with bat- 
tery-backed clock. 

The real compatibility problem will arise 
when software starts to be developed that 
requires the very latest versions of Kicks tart 
and Intuition. 

Commodore will be offering an official 
upgrade path to owners of all machines 
other than the A 1000. It requires the replace- 
ment of a number of chips, so don't count on 
It being cheap. It is a sensible Investment 
though, 

The recommended retail price of the A500 
Cartoon Classics bundle is £399. This has also 
been the price for earlier bundles. If you have 
been charged more, It Is over the odds. 

There Is very little you can do though, as 
the RRP Is only a guideline - retailers can lit- 
erally charge as much as they think they can 
get away with.

processes? Sfl would it not be true to lay that it only 
giv« virtual multitasking through processor sharing? 

Secondly, why did Commodore spe*r>d all that cash 
on developing the CDTV system, only to decide to also 
release a keyboard for it (soon J turning it into an 
Amiga, and release a CD-ROM drive for the Amiga 
turning it into & CDTV system? 

Would the money not have been better spent on 
me (a poor student) or just on the development of a 
CD-ROM drive tor the Amiga? Or a hardware ZX81 
emulator? Or an eaiy way to fit an upgrade on an ST? 

A lot of money to create two very similar things. Is 
that not quite silly? 

Finally, I think capital punishment should be re- 
introduced for software thieves. 
I Small, Edinburgh, Scotland. 

The Amiga performs more than one task simultane- 
ously - that is my definition of multitasking. 
Remember It also has a suite of custom processors 
to deal with anything from graphics, animation and 
sound to bus control. Paula, Agnes, Denese and 
Buster all do their bit to ease the 6SO00 s load. 

Commodore don't want people to see the CDTV 
as a computer. It doesn't have peripherals, It has 
"accessories" (I kid you not!). 

The keyboard has become necessary in order to 
use things like database programs and reference 
works- There will still be a distinct line drawn 
between the CDTV and the Amiga, 

Commodore consider the Amiga CD-ROM drive, 
the A69TJ, to be a storage device, whereas the CDTV 
is a concept. 

The A690 will be a major boost for the Amiga. 
Think of It, you will have all the power of the Amiga 
coupled with the storage capacity of CD-ROM. That 
combination is much more versatile than the CDTV. 

As for being a poor student, I wouldn't have It 
any other wajri 

Gamer grumbles 

As a 63-year-old CCI (Geriatric Computer Illiterate), I 
subscribe to two computer mags, and usually buy a 
third. I find that I probably understand about five per 
cent of what I read in these magazines, and yet they 
have b«en written and understood by a large body of 
the population. 

This has formulated in my mind the theory that 
there is a parallel existence which interfaces with us 
lesser mortals about five per cent of the time. Does 
anybody else subscribe to this theory? 

Now for the moans. This is another problem with 
being a CO, you gel irritated very easily I 

One of the magazines to which I subscribe is, of 
course, Amiga Computing. The reason I decided to 
subscribe to this mag is because the games content 
seemed Id be minimal. 

Now what do you do? You put a great wad of 
games info in the mag in such a way that it is a pest 
when you're trying to read the rest of the mag, and 
you can't get rid of it unless you destroy the maga- 
zine. Renewal of subscription is under very serious 
consideration. 

One last thing, are there any other like-minded 
GCI'i in this area who would like to be together far 
mutual warmth and comlort?

games coverage. We still have less games cover- 
age than the bulk of Amiga magazines - quality 
rather than quantity is the operative. We could 
have removed games coverage completely, but 
that would deny the existence of the bulk of 
Amiga owners. Mot a wise thing to do In our opin- 
ion I 

Why not have a read of Comer? Go on - you 
might like it! 

Enchanted melody? 

I couldn't help noticing that your October Tune ol 
the Month, Toccata by one £ Miller, bears more than 
a passing resemblance to a tune of the same name by 
my favourite- Amiga musician, Alister ftrimble. This 
can be found on 1 7 Bit's Supreme Sounds Vol 1 disk 
dated June 1989- 

There are minor differences such as additional per- 
cussion sounds and a couple of tiny tweaks to the 
liming in places, but these are easy to do in MED. 
blister's overall arrangement and instrumentation is 
left pretty well as written. Even most of the sounds 
are the same, even down to the dodgy looping in the 
opening chords (sorry Alister!), 

Alister wrote his version in SoundTracker, but 
again it is quite straightforward to convert a sound- 
tracker tune to MED format 

Of course it could just be a huge coincidence, but 
if I'm right, then tut-tut E Milier! Check it out! 
ft Baxter, Manchester 

Yours Is one of several letters I have received 
pointing out the alleged origin of this musical 
masterpiece. 
We included the tune on the disk in good faith,

Looking for something to spend those last few Christmas pounds on? Daniel Whitehead sorts out some PD bargains. 



With Christmas now 
receding Into a blur of 
cheap tinsel and even 
cheaper sherry, the PD companies 
have been bombarding us with 
games. For those who loathe to look 
at games there are some rather 
interesting utilities and such like, but 
for those who want to mop up the 
last of their hard-earned cash on 
some post festive zapping, then this 
one's for yon... 

Neptune 
Slideshow 

AmlgaNuti Disk No 1179 

After last month's scintillating Mars 
Slideshow, this month's digitised offer- 
ing comes Irom Amiganuts as a two 
disk set. Vet more digitised pictures of 
another planet for you to load up and, 
er, look at. 

The quality ranges from crystal clear 
on some of the close-up shots to fairly 
indistinct for some shots of the whole 
planet. The real problem is that 
Neptune isn't very exciting. With Mats 
at least you've got all the rumours and 
mystery of the Planet of War - 
Neptune just doesn't have much 
"oomph". This slideshow doesn't even 
have the informative text overlays of 
the Mars slideshow. 

A bit of a pointless exercise, really, 
Worth a look if you want to see what 
can be achieved with a digitiser, but 
not reaily different enough to make it 
worth getting. 

The Invisible 
World 

Strictly PD Plfk No D462 

Another digitised slideshow, but one 
that's a lot more Interesting, especially 
for the more macabre among you. It's 
made up of three sections, each one 
highlighting one aspect of the things 
we cannot see with the naked eye. 

The first section shows, in unflinch- 
ing detail, ail the little bugs and beast- 
ies who live in, on and around us- Each 
picture is accompanied by some suit- 
ably skin-crawling text id let us know 




Down Hill Challenge 

Strictly PD Disk No G342 



First mention of the month goes to 
thil wonderfully nostalgic skiing 
game. Those who graduated to the 
Amiga from the humhlr Spectrum 
will instantly recognise that cob 
webby lave, Horace Goes Skiing. 
The graphics are different, and the 
crossing the road section has gone, 
but the exhilaration of rushing 
down a piaelated slope and dodg- 
ing trees at high speed is still than 

There are a few minor problems, 
such as the way the gam* Is simply 
over once you've completed the 
course 

The randomly generated trees 
and rocks make it different each 
time you play, and the bonus flans 
and extra point* for leaping over 
branches add excitement to the 
battle for a high score. 

The longer you stay on your skis 
the more points you earn, [lie List ft 
you go and the harder things jet 
Mi) .in obstacle and you fall flat on 
pur face and lose one ol your five 
lives. 

It's everything that a PD game 
should be. Simple, well thought out 



exactly what these little beggars dD to 
us. Many a shiver passed through the 
office at the sight of a bed bug magni- 
fied 300 times. Not for the squeamish 

The second section focuses on those 
clever stop motion films, and includes

and outrageously addictive Not the 
sort of thing that'll keep you glued to 
the joystick for hours on end, but Ifl 
the sort of game that you fust want 
to load up for a quick go in In 



shots of bananas being shot, with the 
picture held at the exact point of 
impact and the skin of a balloon peel- 
ing back in under & millionth of a sec- 
ond as it is burst. Amazing stuff. Again, 
text accompanies each picture giving 
information on what it is and, more 
interestingly, how it was achieved. 

The final section reveals what tiny, 
everyday objects took like when magni- 
fied. A crack in an egg becomes a giant 
crevasse and a pinch of salt looks like a 
demolished buifding. The text contin- 
ues to describe the awesome sights, 
and you'll be hard pushed to believe it 
sometimes! Surely that horrendous 
mass of squirming spaghetti can't really 
be plaque on a tooth? 

The quality of the black and white 
pictures is very high, so no detail can 
be missed. Each section is as interesting 
and eye opening as the last and is guar- 



more serious matters. A pleasant 
diversion And isn't that what PD 
games are about? Play ability and 
good fun ' nought pence. 

Grut, undemanding -.lull 



anteed to have everyone gasping and 
muttering "Well i never,,.*. 

Compelling stuff, and definitely worth 
keeping your eyes open for, if you can 
Stomach the thought of all those little 
monsters swimming around in your 
armpits, 

The Final 
Frontier 

Strictly PD Diik No UJ14 

Mere's a treat for all you Trekkies out 
there. The Final Frontier is a disk maga- 
zine dealing exclusively with Star Trek 
trivia and info. Lively Trek debates rage 
in the letters section, is Wil Weaton 
rubbish? Is The Next Generation a pile 
of old klingons? You can air your views 
here, and also get gripes about dodgy

r-ierchandise and life in general off your 
chest. 

The whote thing is very well pre- 
sented, featuring several Tobias Richter 
pictures inspired by the series. It's, fairly 
obvious that this won't appeal to the 
"normal'" people out there, but for all 
yoy Trefckies, it'll go down a treat. 

Games 
Compilation 1 

Warpdrive Disk No 0511 

A fairly new PO library are Warpdrive, 
having only been around since June, In 
a blatant bid tor free publicity, they've 
sent us a preview of their first games 
compilation, Arid just look at the qual- 
ity of these games... 

You get four games on the disk - 
Bip, Wizzy's Quest, Svs, and [ahem) 
Skoda Challenge. Dip is a revamped 
version of some old arcade machine 
that no-one can remember the name 
of, Wizzy's Quest is a puzzle game in 
the vein of Spherical, Sys is really Pengo 
m disguise, and Skoda Challenge is, er, 
well it speaks for itself, really. 

Of the four, Bio is by far the most 
fun. Il's a two player affair where you 




rubUc domain. Jltt HaoHmatlet. Thftrari ihr tanlinurng imyagti at far stkhrd caf>tit\n\ 



each take control of a tittle biplane and 
zip about the skies trying to shoot each 
other down. The catch is that the 
planes handle in a strange way. 

Pushing forward on the joystick speeds 
you up and then right and left rotate 
the plane Fire, as if by magic, fires your 
machine gun. 

The planes have to obey the laws of 
physics though, and il you try to many 
intricate twists and turns then your 




engine cuts out and you tumble to the 
ground. The first player to crash or get 
shot fifteen times loses. It's a simple 
concept, but it's beautifully pro- 
grammed and once you've got the 
hang of the controls, you can have 
hours of fun looping the loop and dive- 
bombing your mates. 

Wizzy's Quest is a German puzzle 
game, witb all the text translated with 
a wicked sense of humour. All you 
have to do is guide some ancient wiz- 
ard bloke out of each level by build- 
ing blocks to climb up and over 
obstacles. You get 50 levels so there's 
no risk of it being too easy. The con- 
trol is a bit sticky, but this doesn't 
matter too much as fast reactions 
aren't that important. It's not bril- 
liant, but it's good for a laugh . 

Sys is another puzzly type of 
game, based on Pengo, You con- 
trot a little round bloke who shuf- 
fles round a maze of disks and 
must destroy the viruses by shunt- 
ing said disks on top of them. It's 
been done before, and done bet- 
ter, but as part of a four pack, it's 
a mildly entertaining way to 
spend a few minutes. And finally

Amiganuts update! 



Arniganuts have asked us to make a few statements on their behalf to [he PO buy- 
ing public- First of all, those Amiga nutters would tike to make it known that as of 
now all their disks are fully compatible with the A5QG Plus. 

They're also proud to announce the latest developments in the wacky and wild 
world ol OctaMED. They are now able to offer a full OctaMED manual, to help you 
squeeze the best results from Teijo's musical masterpiece. 

The manual comes all professionally bound up, like the worksheets you got in 
school that always smelled of Bostik. fortunately, this manual doesn't smell even 
remotely Bostik-like, but it does contain 90 pages of hints, tips and instructions foe 
everyone's favourite PD program. 

It's very welt laid out, and looks quite daunting to the unconverted, but if you're 
conversant with the program then this'll sort out any queries you might have. It's 
nice to See PD libraries becoming more professional in their marketing isn't it? 

Also available from those huggabte Amiganuts it a disk magazine, going by the 
uncanny title of AM/FM. it's described as "a magazine-cum-utilities disk that is 
aimed strictly for the musical Amiga user". Sounds like your cup of tea? Then get in 
touch with the 'Nuts and get yourself a copy.

last, a iinipilf lo use fractal generator! This is fust the Ihing for all the peo- 
^r who like the idea ol fractals but are a hit confuted by all the facts and 

aj you need to do Is type In a seed number (then ily tens of 

Ehoutands to choose from}, and then selecl a level ol ch 

Th* program then spends the next few millenia drawing your fractal 
(■orid. Once that's done, you can adjust the picture to suit your tastes and 
then look at it, say "that's a very nice fractal landscape" before doing 
another (Hie. 

There's, really very little eke to say about it. It's a fractal designer, it's 
tmrtjf slow, and you've probacy already got at least another three some- 
■rhere at home. Still, If you haven't and you're desperate to see some fractal 
undttapey, then go gel it 



caboodle was spawned by AMOS. 

Ifs very well laid out, and feels more 
than a little Hike the computerised 
Trivial Pursuit. Unfortunately they've 
opted for a different answering 
method, where you must type answers 
in, which means that you Can gel an 
answer wrong for silly reasons. 

For instance, when asked "What 
German city is famous for a scent it 
produces?" do you answer "Cologne" 
or"Koln"7 

This "knowing the answer but still 
getting it wrong" situation is more 
frustrating than debating whether or 
not the player called out the right 
answer. At least you can sort that out 
among yourselves. 

There are over 1,000 questions, 
although we found that some did 
repeat during our first game. The level 
of difficulty is pitched very high, so It 
might take a long time to finish a 
game. As if this was anticipated, there 
is an option to save the quiz and carry 
on at another time. 

Apart from these reiatively minor 
niggles, it's a worthwhile product. Of 
course, it's best with four, but you can 
play alone and learn ail the questions 
so you win every time. 

Either way, ifs a fun little game and 
as long as you don't mind being 
made to look like a complete thickie, 
you'll come back to it time and time 
again. 



Challenge. Imagine SuperCars 
-owed right down to a snail's pace. 
*ith dodgy steering. That's Skoda 
Challenge. And oddly enough, that's 
koda cat! as well, SO it's sta riling ly 
Mafabc. 

Even with these deliberate "prob- 
ems* it's still fun to play. You can have 
rxir players at once, and all you have 
to do is trundle around and shoot each 
other, with front-mounted Skoda can- 
•vjns (?). The slow response actually 
makes confrontations loads more fun 
as you wobble around each other try- 
ng to get the other car in your sights, 
1: liiness abounds, but it's wonderfully 
inventive.

And to round off our festive selection, 
a quiz game to keep you huddled over 
your Amiga in the cold January 
evenings. Who knows, you might even 
lure the family technophobes in for a 
game! 

The quiz takes the form of a race, in 
which each player must advance their 
car by answering questions correctly. 
You can have up to tour players and 
the questions are randomly chosen 
from four categories, And the whole

Virus Fr« PD Dltfc No 2057 

Having had their fingers burned by their ventures into the, shall we say, "fruitier* 
aspects of public domain. Virus Free have cleaned up their act and are now deal- 
ing in respectable utilities disks and other such decidedly normal wares. And 
apparently the dog is a lot better now. 

This Opti Utils disk contains four virus killer, including Nuke, the Saddam virus 
killer which could come in handy for any AUt readers out there, plus 18 other 
handy and riot so handy programs. 

It deserves a mention as it includes the Text Engine, a PD wordprocessor that 
got the thumbs up last issue. This alone makes the disk worth getting, with the 
other stuff making a nice bonus. 

And what d( the other stuff? Well, there's your usual selection of disk format- 
ters and repairers, PP^how of course, and a disk copy program that's a good deal 
faster than the professional X Copy, And, no, it won't copy commercial software, 
so you can put that wooden leg away right now, 

A good selection, with some predictable utilities but with the inspired inclu- 
sion of Test Engine.. Get it just for that, if needs be.

Amiga Coders Club 

Amlrjanuts 

Yes, the Amiga Coders Club are still going from strength to strength. 
They've now released a Special assembler disk to assist all you would be 
Bitmap Brothers in your quest for the perfect parallax, 

The disk-based magazine that they produce is fairly small, but it contains 
a wealth of lips and hints for beginners and they don't scorn those who 
don't know the lingo, The feel of the thing is all very "matey", with most of 
the regular contributors exchanging jokes and zany tales of data processing 
on the letters page. 

II you're a coder, no matter how experienced or inexperienced, (hen I 
Bdvise you to get in with these guys. You'll probably learn some new stuff 
,irnl rn,ik<- toads «f friends all over the country in the process. This is the sort 
of community spirit that keeps PD alive, Cliches R Us, or what?

Maddock casts an evil eye over this month's demo 



I 



If you're a hit strapped (or cash then you 
could do a lot worse than buying the 
Kryptit's demo disk. It contains loads of bril- 
liant demos - for the price of a packet of 
Cornflakes you get the LSD Despair demo (Which 
needs two drives to work) and the uniquely 
named Definition of Boombastic by those demo 
genii The Rebels, 

]jst by buying this disk you get all the strollers 
and light-sou reed vectors a demo fan could every 
need. Great graphics and great musk - what 
more tould a demophobe ask lor? 

Now for those of you who hate all this hard- 
core dance malarkey, there's a disk from 
Amiganuts which is tailor-made for all you classi- 
cal music fans out there. Its top raver George 
Gershwin with his classic Rhapsody in Blue (you 
know, the tune off. the Galaxy adverts). Being a 
hard-core dance music fan myself, all I can say is 
that it's well put together and it sure sounds nice 
on the ale' lugholes. 

Now for some real music - hard-tore dance 
music, that is. This disk from 1 7-Bit software con- 
tains two demos, one by The Rebels which is 
called The Thing (the hard-core dance one) and 
one by T56 (not the hard-core dance one). The 
Thing is serious dance stuff aid contains 
starfields galore, while The TSB disk - it stands 
for The Special Brothers, fact fans - serves as a 
nice complement and also contains loads of vec- 
tors, staff iefds and other such demo-type things 

What's this? Well, would you believe it - it's a 
fantabulous Miami Vice remix by HCC, If you like 
Miami Vice then you'll love this and if you like 
Don |ohnson then you'll be trembling with 
excitement, because there is a mega digitised 
picture of the man in question. Nice, very nice 
indeed. 

The next offering is poptastic in more ways 
than one because it's a great megamia of Harry 
Enfield's Loadsamoney, which was released a 
while back. A definite "fans only" disk, this one. 
All I can say is bosh bosh zoom zoom wallop 
dosh - get the disk and you'll find out what I'm 
going on about {I think he's finally flipped - Ed). 
It's available from the boys at Amiganuts, who 



also do a lot of work for charity. More music? 
¥es, I'm afraid it's true, and even those little 
Lemmings have managed to get on to this disk 

It's entitled Lemming Curd and it's got five 
great tunes on it. All are ol excellent quality, and 
check out the tune entitled Dentistry - it's excep- 
tionally good Also on the disk is the Gods remis 
- a great rehash of a pretty wonderful game, 
courtesy of the Bitmap Brothers. 

The big Austrian is back, and this time he's 
appearing on lJ-Bit's two disk Terminator 2 
slideshow It features loads of pictures of Amie in 
action, plus shots from other scenes in the movie. 
This is definitely for Arnold Schwarzenegger fans 
only (so that's just about everyone, then). Every 
time it was shown in the office there were great 
cries of "Uzi9-rnillimeW 
and other such Arnie 

quotes. For a slideshow 

the quality of the pictures 

is very good indeed, 
Other recommended 

disks include 17-Bit's 

Powerdemos featuring 

offerings from The Silents 

and Phenomena, which 

are both well worth 

adding to your collection. 

Also from 17-Bit is yet 

another Rebel demo - 

this one's entitled 

Outland and is probably 

their best yet. 

Divina's Techno Fright 

has excellent graphics 

and thunderous music, which combine to make it 

a truly great example. Also worth a mention is 

Exile's Fontdisk which contains loads of great 

fonts all wonderfully drawn (including the very 

dodgy pomofont). The digitised picture of the 

Exile team at the beginning shows that these 

guys aren't even out of their nappies yet! And 

their mothers think they're such nice lads... 
Well that's all for this month - see you next 

lime for more music, demos and animations. 
Same time, same channel.

Daisy, daisy... 

When I bought my standard A59Q as it first came 
onto the market, one of its good points was Its ability 

IB accept drives, daisy-chain fashion, through the 
nr expansion port. Since I have now come close Id 
■ng my 20Mb, I would like to make use of this port, 
but can't find anyone to tell me how. 

Can I just connect another hare hard drive straight 
to it, or do I need another interface of some kind? I 
recently saw a 
hard drive in an 
electronics shop 
Tor the DM 
equivalent of 
£1 00. I know it's 
t risk, but for 
That price, as 
<gng as it's a 
SCSI drive, I'll 
take the chance. 

The drive has 
no docs and no 
box, just an 
edge connector, 
so how do I go 
about sussing out the connection? Is there a standard 
format for these things? 
UCpl Robins, 75 Sqn, 3 ADTR, BOAR 

The procedure by which you connect an extern.il 
SCSI to your A59Q Is relatively simple as long as 
the external device is of the proper kind. 

First, make sure it is a standard SCSI device, and 
th*1 it has either the full SCSI 50-pin connector, or 
the smaller DB25 connector. If there is a 50-pln 
connector, don't worry, as you should be able to 
find a 50-to-2S cable quite easily. The next 



Pius problem? 

I've had an A50Q for three years, and am now 
the proud owner of an A500 Plus. 

Reading through other magazines as well 
as your own, there has been a lot of talk 
about fitting extra chips to a motherboard 
making the trapdoor useless for further 
expansion. This Isn't truel 

I fitted a half meg card to my A500 ; 
Plus and what do you think 1 got? 
1.5Mb of chip RAMI Correct me If I'm 
wrong, but the Super Agnus (8375) .' 
cm handle up to 2Mb of chip RAM / 
just like an AsOOO I want to buy a ** "V-t. 
2Mb expansion board for the Plus so t-^ 
I can use the full 2Mb of chip RAM as well 
as 1Mb of fast RAM. The question is, howT 

There are a lot of 1,5Mb expansion cards 
around, usually requiring a connection to the Gary 
chip. Are these only tor the 1 ,i operating system? 
On a final note, Oatel's Action Replay II cartridge 
doesn't seem to work on my A500 Plus, 
Joe Wood, Wigan 

Tiki The comments- you refer to were in reply to 
letters on the subject of soldering RAM chips 
directly onto a rev 6.2 motherboard from a 1.3 
A 500, Commodore's own engineers faint at the 
mere mention of such radical measures, and are 
adamant that the conversion would mean the 
end of your trapdoor for the purposes of RAM 
expansion. 

As for the A5D0 Plus, there are, to my k/iowl-

requirement is that the drive has Its own power 
supply. If the unit you've been looking at has a 
built-in PSU, great, but If It doesn't, it should at 
least have a power socket to which you can con- 
nect an external P5U- 

As there Is no documentation with your drive, 
you'll have to guess at the power requirements. A 
good estimate would be either +5V/2.DA or 
+ 12W1.5A (both DC). YOU might have to experi-

ment with your A59Q's dip switches. Switch 2, In 
particular, concerns the way your Interface 
addresses Logical Unit Numbers, and may have to 
be set to ON. If you can suss this lot out, and the 
SCSI device Is terminated with a resistor, connec- 
tion will be a matter of plugging the 25-pin cable 
Into the back of the A590. 

A belter way of upgrading the M90 might be 
to back down the hard drive to floppies, then pur- 
chase a 40Mb or 80Mb drive unit to replace the 
existing 20Mb unit and double or quadruple your 
storage space. 



Saddam again 



edge, no 2Mb boards on the 
horizon, but Commodore and a number of third 
party manufacturers are already developing 1Mb 
boards. One or two of these may be available by 
the time you read this reply. 

I'm not sure yet if any of the boards will allow 
the user to specify which kind of memory the 
board adds, but let's hope this Is the case. Many 
programs are designed to work with fast RAM, 
and as there Is none on the A500 Plus, we can 
only pray that an expansion board which offers 
fast RAM is released soon. 

All 1,5Mb boards which connect to the Gary 
chip will be incompatible with the A500 Plus 
unless redesigned by the manufacturers. 



Firstly, thank you For another great CoverDisk. 
However, I have a slight problem with Virus Checker 
5,26, 

In using November's. CoverDisk, I have found three 
viruses, These are Saddam, Byte Bandit, and the 
Australian Parasite Virus. While I think the virus killer 
has disabled Byte Bandit, both Saddam and the 
Parasite Virus appear still to be in memory. 

The Saddam- vims is proving particularly difficult to 
kill, as Virus Checker claims that the computer and 
disks are both Infected. I have followed your instruc- 
tions and still cannot kill the virus, and I'm getting 
desperate. Can you help? 
Christopher Riley, Littlemore 

Unfortunately, I don't have a great deal of infor- 
mation on the Australian Parasite virus, save that 
It Is a boot block virus which infects your memory. 
Any detailed info' from a reader with knowledge 
of APV would be appreciated. 

As long as you have cleared the virus from the 
suspect boot block, and turned your machine off 
for JO seconds, the virus should be no more. 
Write -protect all your disks until you're sure It's 
not still active on one, 

As for Saddam, you'll have discovered the 
annoying habit he has of seeming always to be in 
use once he has been activated. In the inactive 
form, Saddam is as deletabl* as any file, but once

Proceed by copying all essentia) files from the

Putting the boot in

Multisync without flicker 

I own an ASOO with 1Mb RAM, an external drive, a 
colour printer, and Midi keyboard linked via a Midi 
interface, The weak link in my system, however, « 
my reliance on a TV set for display purposes, which 
doesn't do justice to the visual output, be it graph- 
ics, Music*;, or Wordworth. 

Having read the article on multisync monitors in 
your November issue, i thought "Creall 1 must get a 
multisync*, because I'll be upgrading to the AlSOO 
when Workbench 2.0 is shipped, and then I can get 
an A2320 card for It. 

However, when I visited a recent trade show and 
asked some people for advice, the difference! in 
opinion were rather extreme. Some tried to sell me a 
multisync on the spot, others told me I would be 
wasting my money, another said tlie monitor 
wouldn't work without a flicker fixer. 

I should like to buy a multisync and use it on an 
un -flicker-fixed A500 in normal mode for the pre- 
sent. Would this work? Nest, when Kickstart 2.0 is 




«£- 



're Stf

available, I would part-exchange my ASOO for an 
A1500 and add an A2320 flicker-finer card to 
enable the use of all graphics modes. 

Please tell me if I'm taking a sensible upgrade 
route, or if I should stick with my present system 
and buy a Philips CM8833 or Commoriore 1Q84S. 
Philip Hawkins, Newbury 

The upgrade path you're contemplating would 
he a sensible, gradual expansion of your system 
except for the fact that it won't work. Whoever 
tried to sell you a multisync without a flicker- 
fixer was trying to make a fast buck and was 
doing you no favours. 

Unless you buy a multisync which can syne 
down l& 15.5kHz,, the frequency at which the 
Amiga's standard! video signal is output, you 
wouldn't be able to use the monitor at all, and 
even if you did buy one, you'd still have the 
annoying flicker that comes with interlace mode. 

For your purposes, possibly the best upgrade 
path is to wait until official ECS and Kkhstart 
2.04 hits aire available. You should then upgrade 



Mystery of error 2/2 revealed 

I've just started delving into Workbench after using my Amiga for games over the last year or so. My main 
problem, apart from terminal confusion, is with icons. I've been copying and moving and renaming them, 
but there are a few errors I keep running up against, 

The first is error 205, which I've now sussed out as being the one that appears when you try to clkh on an 
icon which has no file attached. Error 212, however, is causing me a lot of grief. 

I've used Iconmaster from your excellent Workstation disk to create some fantastic Icons, and used them 
tor just about everything, My WorkBench screen now looks superb, but it keeps causing errors. What can 1 

do? 

Jason Samson, Glastonbury 

Your problem is as simple as Its solution, Error 212 occurs when an Icon thinks It's one type of file and 
the file itself has another idea. In other words, you may have created a smashing Icon for your utilities 
directory, but If you save it from Iconmaster with- 
out changing Its kon type, it'll think It's a tool, 

To change the icons, load them into 
Iconmaster and select the correct setting from the 
Icon Type menu. Remember - a tool Is an exe- 
cutable program file, and a project Is usually a 
data file, 

Projects will be text files, Amiga DOS scripts, or 
DPaint images, and they must be given the cor 
rect default tool type or they won't work when 
you click them. Try the Tune of the Month or file 
icons from the Cover Disk for examples of default 
tool types. 




your Amiga and use the new Productivity mode, 
which gives 640 x 480 non-Interlaced In conjunc- 
tion with a 15,ShHz-capable multisync. Monitors 
of this type are, unfortunately, rather expensive, 
but probably less so than buying both a flicker- 
fixer and one of the cheaper multisynes. 

Dumping Kindwords! 

I use Kindwords Home Office and wish 

to buy a letter quality printer capable of 

graphics presentation. Ideally, I would Rkt 

to buy the Canon BJ-Kte bubblejet, but I'm unsure 

whether there is a suitable driver for it. 

Can you please advise me if I can run this printer 
for the Amiga and, if so, which printer driver is cor- 
rect? 
Peter Barton, Arlington 

You have two choices, Either buy the Canon and 
look for the shareware printer driver - you 
should find it in a PD library which supports the 
Fred Fish range - or you could dump Kindwords 
in favour of Wordworth. 

Not only Is Wordworth a vastly better word- 
processor than Kindwords, It is also on offer to 
Kindwords owners at a knock down price. If you 
send your original disks to Digits, they will sell 
you a copy of Wordworth for £89.99 instead of 
the usual £129 99 

Wordworth 1,1 now has direct support for a 
variety of printers with their built-in fonts. 
There's a special printer driver for the BJ-10e, 
and Wordworth enables the easy use of any of 
the printer's fonts. Dlglta can be reached on 
0195 270271. 

Hidden menu revealed 

I recently purchased a new A500 Plus, arid having a 
5. 25 in floppy from my previous Amiga, I didn't like 
the idea of opening the machine to Install a new 
boot switch, so breaking my warranty. I looked for 
an external switch and couldn't find one, and for a 
while I was stuck. 

Then I found out that the new Amiga has a hid- 
den screen I To access this, reboot and at the same 
time hold down both mouse buttons- The hidden 
menu will appear after a while with options for 
DF1, DF2 and so on, It's possible from this screen 
to choose which floppy to boot from I 

Hope this is of some use to the rest of your ASOO 
Plus-owning readers. 
A Bage, Middlesborough 

We already knew about the loot Menu available 
from boot up, as almost the first thing we tried 
on the Plus was to hold down the mouse buttons 
to see if there was a hidden boot option for 1,3 
emulation. 

Thanks for writing in, though, as we forgot to 
mention this facility In the ASOO Plus review. So 
many Improvements and so little space to write 
about them. 

In fact, there are a couple of things you don't 
mention. The Boot Menu's advanced options 
page provides information on device types, their 
boot priority, the device handlers they use, and 
unit numbers. 

You can choose to disable any device, which 
will save users of 1Mb machines having to dis- 
connect extra drives when playing large games, 
and can even decide to disable the startup 
sequence.

Reflections 

on reality 




A ieltttlatt uf h'deon's vtry own txampk Wri, bat bt marnctS 
- you'll hnvt to iprnd «r serious tent) an equipment to 
achitvt ihfc tortni quality 



Paul Austin looks at Videos the latest method of 
immortalising still life on the Amiga 



igitising is big business an the Amiga, as a 
brief glance at (be glassy folds of any mag 
will tell you. The question is: Can we mere 
mortals create the same result* at home as the advertis- 
ers manage in the studio? The answer is usually no. 
Most systems only really shine when married to high- 
end video equipment complete with suitable lighting, 

Videon, like some of its competitors, suffers barfly in 
less than perfect conditions, and as a result it's worth 
looking at what's on offer besides pure digitising skill. 
It's here where Videon scores well, with a whole range 
of image manipulation and effects that many of its 
competitors can't match, 

Unlike many recent releases, Videon is a slow scan-- 
ning digitiser and requires a static subject in all modes. 
Because ol this it's essential that you have a video that 
can produce a high quality static image, or alternatively a 
camcorder which dan Feed a live signal of a static subject. 
The manual recommends that if you're using a VCR 
it must have a minimum of three heads. Particular 
favourites are Hi-band 8mm, S-VHS or VHS machines 
with Four heads. Again, high-end machines are recom- 
mended If you're employing a camera. Once again 5- 



VH$ is on fhe list, but tapping the chart are CCD cam- 
eras, primarily due to their quality output and ability to 
get by with less lighting, 

It you're lucky enough to own a machine with sepa- 
rate RGB output it's perfect, as you can then take 
advantage of Videon's optional triple scan mode which 
has been included for those who want to employ mono 
cameras with external fillers. 

RGB input gives by far the best results, producing 
sharper and clearer images. As you've probably guessed 
the digitiser's default mode is full colour, so there's no 
need to use external fillers of any sort. Simply plug in 
any colour signal and the hardware does the compila- 
tion work in a single scan - no swapping bits ol 
coloured plastic and no multiple exposures, 

Assuming you have a suitable source, the next ques- 
tion is what can be done with it and what form can 
your captives take. Well, to start with, there's a full 
selection, of screen modes which expand right up to the 
Amiga's legal internal limit of 768 x 56B in full hi-res 
overscan. 

Digitising takes place in full 24-bit with its selection 



Stylising your digital delights 






Straightforward digitising isn't the hardware's sole 
concern, In lact, stylising your digital prisoners Is 
taken just as seriously as their capture. The package 
boasts a selection of six separate effects that can be 
employed singly or in conjunction with others, 

The effects screen contains five definable effects. 
They can be adjusted with click and drag sliders 
wh'ch assign the amount of effect employed. I'he 
sixth eFfecl. namely the negative option, has a sin- 
gle button and operates as a simple off/on toggle. 

The first effect In the collection Is a puelisation 
tool which distorts the Image Into large pixel-style 
squares often used in the TV business to protect 
the Identity of interviewees from assorted bad 
guys- 
Next comes the Multiple option which duplicates 
1 1i>- im,'nji' into numerous miniature ntpfeK. limply 
moving the slider defines how many segments the 
screen is divided into, 

Solaris the rather curious title of the third effect. 
It alters the image by making the component 
colours increasingly similar to the fundamental 
colours within the image. 

Zoom is the fourth effect, and as the name sug- 



gests it allows you to close in on any part ol the 
image. Like all the available effects It can be 
repeated to increase the effect if necessary, 

Threshold is the last of the slider-controlled fea 
lures and works by stripping the colours from the 
image and replacing them with black and white. 
The results appear very similar to a negative. 
These can then have their degree of harshness 
defined via the slider. The last option is to produce 
a negative of the Image. Not perhaps the most 
original ides in the business but a useful addition 
if you're working with animations. Another special 
effect aimed at animators awaits on the main 
screen. If you're using live video, one of the 
biggest problems is the inconsistencies En the 
colour palette between the various frames. Videon 
has addressed this particular problem by allowing 
you To lock the palette in the present image to jII 
incoming frames. 

Perhaps the most pleasant part of the effects 
process is the ability to try an effect before it 
becomes a permanent feature of the image. Only 
when the snapshot is applied does the actual 
image alter permanently.

of ] 6,7 million possible colours, which can 
be enhanced even further by a dithering 
routine which claims an apparent onscreen 
resolution of 2,0i00 r OO0 perceivable colours 
within any image. 

These grandiose claims will no doubt 
leave you a little confused. As you're proba- 
bly aware, the only way to see 24- bit images 
is to invest in a 24-bit display board. Because 
erf this Videon doesn't actually display in 24- 
bit, but it does convert the raw 24-bit data 
into the format of your choice. 

Beside* the obvious advantage of starting 
with a 24-bit source, trie system has the 
added bonus of being able to save raw 24- 
bit data which can then be imported into a 
board at a later date. 

A unique display format allows 29,791 colours to be 
displayed in Ham mode. Other formats include 
Enhanced Extra Half Bright plus Enhanced Dynamic hi- 
res which will display 4,0% colours in hi-nes without any 
interruption to multitasking. 

Three scanning options allow you to sacrifice speed 
lor greater definition. This is particularly useful if you're 
working with dodgy source material. 

One of the most pleasing aspects of the Videon sys- 
tem is its design. Unlike some digilisers, the hardware is 
contained solely within a single, sturdy, steel-encased 
unit. 

On the back of the box are three video-ins in the 
form of a single composite plus a pair of Luma and 
Chroma inputs for S-VHS equipment, all three employ- 
ing standard RF connections. Below these lurk another 
three ports all linking direct to the Amiga via a selection 
of pre-supplted cables connecting the monitor, the com- 
puter and finally a parallel connection to port the rele- 
vant digitised information between the two. 

Because Videon takes the RGB signal direct from the 
Amiga and feeds it to the monitor, it's possible to view 
the incoming video and Amiga output on the same 
monitor by simply (licking a switch on the front of the 
unit 

On the opposite side of the casing lies the afore-men- 
tioned display switch, plus a second selector that defines 
either 5-VH5 or composite input. 

Alongside are three knobs which allow you to adjust 
contrast, colour and brightness prior to importation. 
Lastly comes the tracking knob which can go a long way 
towards eradicating interlace flicker, noise within the sig- 
nal and still frame distortion. 

Eradicating flicker 

Because of the system's 24-bit tastes there's a small price 
to be paid in the memory department. In fad, three 
megabytes is what von should be looking towards if you 
want to get the best from the system 

Although Videon will work with a one megabyte 
setup, severe restrictions will be imposed, as the incom- 
ing signal will have to be digitised line by line. As a 
result, the process will take up to three times longer and 
the option to save out raw 24-bit is lost. 

Videon' s most impressive features revolve around 
mapping images onto a selection of built-in shapes. The 
available shapes vary from cubes, cylinders, pyramids 
and cones to frustum pyramids and frustum cones. Each 
can be sized and rotated in all three dimensions, 

As a result, a cone could have its entire area mapped, 
or perhaps just a single surface as shown in the screen- 
shot of the woman sloping off into the distance, 

Controlling the siTing and orientation of the chosen 
shape is simplicity itself. All that's required is to select the 
particular rotation or sizing effect and then apply the

alteration with a rodent and icon arrow combination. All 
changes appear in real time so you can sit back and 
watch as your object tumbles in three dimensional 
space. 

The actually mapping process has two bask formats. 
Images can either be stretched over the entire shape, 
giving the effect of wrapping the image in a sheet, or 
mapped on to each facet of the object. As a result an 
image can be mapped on to any or all of the object's 
surfaces. 

Unfortunately, it's not possible to map different 
images onto individual faceLs, but I suppose that's ask- 
ing a little much for a system retailing for under £200, 

Like the effects, screen mapping operations take place 
within a custom screen, as opposed to the effects sec- 
tion which onry partly obscures the image. Mapping, 
however, occupies the entire screen during the siting 
and orientation stage. 

Once defined, the screen clears and is replaced with 
the gradual rendering of the newly mapped image. As 
with all of Videon's functions, this can be a rattier slow 
process - especially if you're working with an unacceler- 
ated machine. 

Considering the cost, videon is a relatively impressive 
product, but there are a few a points which do their best 
to scrape the icing Irom the cake. 

Firstly, there's its reliance on high quality equipment, 
If you're working with budget kit, don't expect results 
anything like the quality shown in some of the commer- 
cial examples with this article. 

Secondly, if you're in a rush, Videon might not be 
ideal, as some of the more complex digitising processes 
do take some time. Also, if you're running .an accelerator 
you may have to remove it, as I did. 

Videon offers several features which the competition 
can't compete with, but if you're on a budget it's proba- 
bly not the best choice - which I admit sounds a w y- 
litlle strange considering us bargain basement -m-*. .

Volume DHfc has a read/write error' 

How many hard drive owners 
have reached lor the bottle 
upon swing this message lor 
the firsL lime? For peace of mind,, there- 
lore, there are two pieces of software you 
must buy - a backup utility, and a hard 
drive toolbox with Ihe ability to retrieve 
lost or corrupted files. 

Luckily, there are two distinct choices 
in both areas, one each from the commer- 
cial and public domain sectors, so users 
should be able to piece together a decent 
emergency rescue system to suit their 
budgets 

Two commercial packages stand bead 
and shoulders above the opposition in the 
data safety market, and both are pro- 
duced by the same American company. 
The first is Quarterback Tools, an all- 
encompassing hard and floppy drive 
repair package, and the second is QB4, 
the hard drive backup system from the 
same stable. 

QB Took, from Central Coast Software, 
has a number of opfions for the care ot 
sick hard drives, but the two operations 
likely to be most useful when disaster 
strikes are Restore lost/deleted files, and 
Volume Repair. 

Restore losVdeleted files makes a scan 
of the entire hard drive, wbkh can take 
some time, though the user can specify 
the file to be restored il only one has been 
lost, When the scan is complete, and a list 
ol active and deleted files/drawers has 
been drawn up, QB will" display a full 
directory listing with the deleted files 
highlighted. 






Lengthy operation 

The user then decides wbkh files to save, 
and can choose to restore them to the 
same volume or to another device, such 
as a different hard drive partition or a 
floppy drive. The operation can be a 
lengthy one, but QB seldom misses its 
mark, and has spared my own blushes on 
several occasions 

QB Tools' Volume Repair menu is the 
heart of the program., It has options to 
find unreadable blocks - tor 
example, those areas of the 
drive which have been physi- 
cally damaged) - then mark 
them as "out of service", to 
find but not repair bad files, 
and finally to find and repair 
bad Fines. 

By using the find but don't 
repair option, it is possible to 
attain a clear picture of exactly 
which files are causing the 
problem before repairing the 
drive with the third option. 
When this is used, QB Tools 
really snows its class. 

Any number of horrendous 
accidents can befall your hard 
drive, from a simply validalior 
problem, where two or more 



S oft w a re 



files are trying to occupy the same part of 
a drive, to totally scrambled files. QB Toe* 
has the intelligence to analyse bad files 
and inform the user erf the precise nature 
of the problem- When this happens, the 
problem is categorised as minor, serious, 
or very serious. Very serious problems usu- 
ally result in the deletion of the affected 
file, but the more minor problems can 
usually be sorted out QB will recalculate 
checksums, and will even have a go at 
making sense of damaged file headers. 

Where there is a very serious problem, 
such as the file header having ten lost 
altogether, QB will offer only to delete the 
file, but this is quite rare, 

QB Tools' close relative, the QB4 
backup utility, is as powerful as any 
backup utility I've seen. Using this utility, I 
recently backed up a 52Mb quantum onto 
33 floppies, which runs out at over 1.5Mb 
per disk. 

Initially, the program takes the simple 
step of asking which partition you'd like 
backed up and to which floppy drive. It 
then constructs a catalogue of the hard 
drive - a good time to gooff for a toffee- 
and offers the user a variety of backup 
options 

You can choose from a cSrectory listing 
of all files on the disk, exclude those you 
don't need to back up, and decide on 
whether to include or exclude files with 
altered archive flags. The latter is an 
important option, because il a lile has 
been changed since it was last banned up, 
you'll want to save it. If not, there's no 
point in including it. By checking the 
archive flags, QB4 can save a lot of bother. 
I've used QB4 regularly lor some bme 
now, and have newer been let down. As 
long as decent quality floppies are used lor 



saviours 

When the worst happens, do you have the 

software to save your precious data? 

Stevie Kennedy looks at the options 



backups, QFW should be the 
answer to your data security 
problems, 

FixDisk works in a similar 
manner to QB Toots in that 
it carries out a scan of the 
drive you wish to repair, 
However, it has a "direc- 
tory" mode, which is faster 
than the complete cylinder 
by cylinder check and is 
ideal for validation problems 
because il checks primarily lor bitmap 
integrity and the more obvious 






faults. 

When the problem is of a trick- 
ier nature, fixDisk will carry out a 
deeper scan, and can then pick up 
on Ihe sort of faults QB Tools wil 
sometimes miss, To be fair to QB 
Tools, there are occasions when it 
is the only resort after FixDisk has 
laited to sort things out, so I always 
use 1 he two in tandem, 

FixDisk isn't as user-friendly at 
first sight, but its buttons and scan 
options shouldn't put you off. You can 
scan lor deleted files or a specified file, 
just as with QB Toot, delete files, recover 
deleted fries, or rename them. 

Apart from this, 
and FixDisk's ten- 
dency sometimes 
to be a lot slower 
than QB Tools, Ihe 
program is proba-

most valuable and 
useful pieces of

drive owner will ever purchase. 

There are loads ol shareware and PD 
hard drive backup programs around, 
many of which are available initially only 
in demo form. One, however, which has 
stood the test of time, and which can't be 
beaten on its bare hones approach, is 
KwikBackup. Though not as fast or etfe- 
cient as QB4, il is ea5y to use and just as 
reliable. 

Quarterback Tools and Quarterback 

4 are both products of Central Coast 

Software, dist ributed in Ihe UK by 

Silfca Systems (OBI -309 1111). 
Prkes: 0*4 £54.95, QB Toots £69.95. 
FixDisk appeared on the March 
1991 Amiga Computing CoverOisk 
and, with KwickBackup, should be 
available from aH good PD libraries,

Question: How do you make 
hit records without even 
getting out of bed in the 
morning? 
Answer Sampling. 

Everybody doei il r half the music world 
hates it and the other half couldn't Sur- 
vive without it. From George "I'd never 
use sampling* Michael to ihe absolute 
kings of sampling EMF, its use in the 
music business today is widespread. 

Both of the above artists got in 
tremendous trouble over sampling - 
George for sampling fames Brown's 
Funky Drummer and EMF for sampling 
Mark Chapman (the guy who killed 
|ohn Lennon) reciting the lyrics to 
Watching the Wheels (a Lennon song). 

EMF were told off because not only 
was their sample deemed to be in bad 
taste, but the John Lennon estate owns 
the copyright to Watching the Wheels. 
George Michael, on the other hand, 
was told to pay loads of money and 
give away a share of royalties to the 
offended. EMF also suffered the same 
fate and had to remove the sample 
Irom further pressings of the record, as 
well as sending a "sorry we didn't 
mean to do it" note to Yoko Ono. 

So, this is the exciting world of sam- 
pling, where you can release hit records 
and gel into loads and loads of trouble. 
But which sampler should you use? 

There are numerous models on the 
market and the newest to join the fam- 
ily is GVP's 8-bit Digital Sound Studio. 
Inside the box there's a 3.5in white 
disk, a competent 175-page manual 
explaining everything you ever needed 
to know about sampling - but where's 



the sampler? It can't be in that tiny 
box, surely! It is, though - a midget 

thing that looks particularly attractive 
with lights and knobs plastered all over 
it. 

To set it up, you simply plug it into 
the parallel port and connect a stan- 
dard shielded audio cable between it 
and any mono or stereo sound source - 
I found that a CD player gave the best 
quality samples. 

The best way to use almost any kind 
of sampling software is to boot it up 
and tinker around with it. Remember 
you can't do any damage to the hard- 
ware or software - although it is a good 
idea to read how to install the hard- 
ware and software first, or else you 
might find your toaster attached to the 
hack of your Amiga and a crumpet in 
your disk drive. 

The sampler is split up into three 
parts - the sampler itseff, the editor and 
the highly useful tracker, Although 
there do seem to be a lot ol functions 
and a hell of a lot of 
buttons and icons to 
confuse you, it is actu- 
ally quite easy to use. 

The sampler part 
where you actually san 
pie a sound, and is con- 
siderably less complex 
than the other modes. 
The input section 
where you can deter 
mine whether DS5 wi 
sample lhe right, left or 
both input channels. So 
you can choose whether 
to have mono or raz- 




Jilt vfirrxlna u. rtvr\ iruiii yvtt Into

zama-taslic stereo samples. The moni- 
tor controls allow you to select from 
several different forms of screen display 
while monitoring and previewing a 
sound. 

The first three options allow you to 
choose a continuous waveform display

Jonathan Maddock 
looks at CVP's 
tempting 8-Bit 
Digital Studio 
Sound sampler 



like that produced on an oscilloscope. 
The buttons allow you to select from 
three different scales of oscilloscopic 
readout. The other button activates the 
sonic spectral analysis display arid 
shows ygu in real lime the different fre- 
quencies from lowest to highest of the 
sound you are about to sample. 

The rest of the buttons allow you to 
set the length of the sample to be 
recorded, the sampling rate, period and 
note. Trial and error is probably the 
best method for determining the 
appropriate settings for the sample 
rate, 

Once you've got all your settings 
right, it's time to actually record the 
sample. You first click on the record 
button to enter the recording mode, 
then click the left mouse button to 
begin sampling, clicking it again to 
slop recording. 

As soon as a recording has been 
completed, a requester will appear ask- 
ing for a name for your sample, 
Christen it something and that's it - 
sampling completed. As you tan see, 
recording is easy and really anyone can 
do il. Gel granny on it right away - 
she'll love to sample a bit of Pavarolli! 

The editor is divided into several sec- 
tions - the display window, the slider 
controls, the editor function console 
and sample playback. These are the 
main functions, but there are others 
dotted around the screen as well. 

The display window is the pnncipal 
workspace erf DSS. The information pre- 
sented in this window will depend on 
the mode that is currently active. 

The sample list display screen is the 
main screen, containing 31 slots lor the 
storage ol samples, The samples appear 
by name in the numbered slots that 
comprise the list, A small index lo lhe 
left of each sample name indicates 
whether the sample is in stereo, is cur- 
rently loaded into chip memory and 
whether it is less lhan 128k in length. 
This index plays a major role in the 
tracker mode ol DSS. 

All manipulations that have to do 
with increasing and decreasing values 
are performed using the slider controls 
on the left edge of the editor screen.

The slider works like a typical 
AmigaDOS scroll bar. 

The editor function console is full ol 
gadgets and buttons arrayed down the 
right-hand column and across the bot- 
tom of the display window. The buttons 
allow you to edit or modify your sound 
samples. The basic functions are Cut, 
Copy and Paste. There is also a Draw 
mode which lets you use the mouse to 
manually modify the waveform 
onscreen. 

Other functions include a low-pass 
filler which toggles the Amiga's internal 
filter on and off, Loop, which activates 
two loop markers allowing you to 
repeat or loop a specific section of the 
onscreen sample, and Magnify, which 
iooms in on the sample to ma fee cdit- 



C Vf'i very "»n 
ioimdlnntrf than-

ing that tiny bit easier on the eyes. 

Sample Playback, believe it or not, 
lets you play back samples. You can 
choose whether or not you want the 
sample played through the left, right or 
both channels. There arc numerous, 
other options, and it would take me for- 
ever to explain them all. 

DSS's tracker is a lour track sequenc- 
ing program. Fa* those of you who are 
less musically minded, a sequencer 
allows you to compose music without 
using classical notation, looking rather 
like MED, the tracker is very easy to use 
and is ideal for the beginner. 

The idea is that you sample an 
instrument - for example a drum beat - 
and then place it Into the tracker. By 
using either the computer's keyboard or 
an external Midi keyboard you can play

the various notes 
the sample and, 

hopefully, compose p or successful sampling, you must make sure you have a suit- 

i "'" ''"'! h '• able sound source (like a CD player), because if you buy the 

fecord. product and then use a cheap tape recorder you won't be too 

There are some impressed with the results, 
rules, though, that tt if you do use a low quality source, you cannot blame the 
you have to .ibiile product for performing badly - I managed to achieve very 
by when using sam impressive results when I was using it with a high quahiv 
pies. If the sample source.. 
contains no looping I 
segments, it can be no longer than 
12Bk. The sample must also be mono, it 
needs to be loaded into chip RAM, and 
its sampling rate must not exceed 
28,867 samples per second. Oh, and 
never, never feed it after midnight. 

You can check that a sample is eligi* 
tile by looking at its status in the sam- 
ples list. The yellow marker indicates 
the chip RAM, the blue marker indicates 
whether the sample is less than 1 28k in 
size and the white marker indicates 
whether the it is in stereo. 

In DSS, a maw muni ol four sounds 
can be played simultaneously - one 
from each of the Amiga's lour audio 
channels, These four channels are rep- 
resented as parallel vertical columns 
called tracks, A song is a sequence of 
consecutive and simultaneous notes 
which is what any normal person calls 
music, 

Each individual note or sound occur- 
rence is called an event. Events are 
grouped into blocks of 64 per track. 
These blocks can be arranged into a 
pattern or sequence - a song, The 
tracker also has lots of extra buttons 
and gadgets to mess around with. This 
versatility make DSS a joy to use - even 
alter five minutes of use you feel like a 

"proper" musician. 
The tracker is 

compatible with 

SoundTracker, 

Noiselracker and 

Sound Fx. Fancy mak- 
ing a demo of your 

top tunes? We'll with 

DSS it's no ptohlemo 

because you can write 
songs which are auto-executable. You 
tan load the song using Workbench or 
CLl - now you can impress your churns 
with your mega-mixing! 

Overall, the general look and feel of 
DS.S is excellent. It's got so many fea- 
tures and gadgets that you can quite 
easily find yourself engrossed in it from 

the moment you toad 

it up. 

The sound quality 

of recorded samples is 

particularly excellent 

if the Pet Shop Boys 

had an Amiga they'd 

die for this sampler! 

Costing an incredible 

£59.95 including VAT 

and delivery, this is an 
excellent package which won't break 
your bank balance. 

Generally I'm very impressed with 



™ 



h : 



this little goody. The only gmdge I have 
against it is that the connecting leads 
are not supplied, so the absolute begin- 
ner would have purchase them sepa- 
rately. 

This is a much more classy product 
than Stereo Master, reviewed last 
month - it's a "must buy" as far as I'm 
concerned, With a tracker built in to the 
package, it makes an ideal buy for any- 
one just dipping in Id the Amiga music 
market. 

Whether you are a seasoned musi- 
cian or an absolute beginner, this pack- 
age is definitely one to spend your 
Christmas money on, Remember, don'L 
cry and write in to us when you get 
nicked for sampling - blame CVP for 
making it ail so tempting.

"The Amiga was made for AMOS" 



AMOS - The Creator is like nothing you've ever 
seen be lore on the Amiga. For the very first lime 
You'll feel really in control of your computer, and 
able to harness its awesome power to impress 
yourself and your friends, 

AMOS ta not a false promise. When AMOS 
firsl came out, many Amiga users were sceptical 
thai AMOS could do all that was promised - but 
these people are now ardent fan*. There are now 
45,000 AMOS USerS, and AMOS is still the 
biggest-selling productivity package for the Amiga, 
and cart be found on the shelves of virtually every 
good software retailer. 

It's so easy to create AMOS programs that 
almost every public domain library in this 
magazine now has AMOS titles in its collection. 
These include graphics demos, music demos, disc 
magazines, arcade-style games, puzzle games, 
databases, educational software - and lots more. 

Many commercial software packages 
are also written in AMOS. In fact most educational 
publishers use AMOS, especially ourselves with 
the best-selling Fan School 3 rod 4. 




GET FONT, ELLIPSE. RAINBOW, MENU BAR 
and CLOSF, WORKBENCH - so you can create 
any result you want both quickly and easily. 

AMOS comes with a clearly-written 300-page 
manual and more than 8<1 example programs. 
These will guide you towards creating your first 
program, making AMOS the ideal introduction to 
programming on your Amiga. 

What AMOS owners have said: 



AMOS was the perfect choice to create 
Fun School 4 - the results are first class! 

AMOS has also proved to be perfect tor 
producing CDTV packages: The Complete Works 
Of William Shakespeare, The Holy Bible. Mind 
Run I and H plus many others - all created using 
AMOS because of its versatility and ease of use. 

What is AMOS? 



AMOS is a powerful, easy-ln-use programming 
language based around BASIC - the language 
which is taught in schools and colleges, AMOS 
contains more than 500 different English-like 
commands such as MUSIC. VOLUME, SAMPLE. 



"It's the best piece of software I've bought for the 
Arnica. Worth twice the pricef" 

- S Sweet, Heme Bay 

"Without dtmbt the very best Basic available on 
tin 1 Amiga." 

- Paul Feazey, Oxford

AMERICAN FOOTBALL COACH 



on the Amiga (1 Meg only) 



¥ou have a 5 year contract to take your team, London, to at least one AmosBowl against some of the 

toughest opponents ever coached by your Amiga. There is an easier 'RADIO' game in Public Domain it you 

preferf I) hut this version here is for those looking tor a difficult but REALISTIC coaching version of this great 

sport, 

There is no magic joystick here to gel you out of trouble... as coach you call the plays and then hold your 
breath while watching the action on our special chalkboard and believe us, watching increases the 

excitement ten-fold. You will see... 

EVERY PLAY.. .OF EVERY MATCH...OF EVERY SEASON 

All the usual plays are available such as KICKOFFS both NORMAL & ONSIDE...PUNTS both DISTANCE & 

ANGLED... RUNBACKS for TOUCHDOWNS... FUMBLES,. .INTER CEPTIONS... BLITZES both INSIDE & 

OUTSIDE. ..REVERSE RUNS... DROPPED CATCHES... COMPLETIONS & 

RUNS...SAFETIES...SACKS...BOOTLEGS...SNEAKS...2 MINUTE DRILL...DOUBLE COVER...ETC and all 

played at a speed that will keep you locked onto your screen so that you do not miss any of the action. 

HIGHLY ADDICTIVE... 

Ltke all coach es! you do have some help in the form of UPTO DATE skill assessments ol your players and the 

opposition... 

Over 100 statistics available at the press of a button at any time during the match... SEASON STATS at the 
end of the match which show you just who is and Isn't doing it for you... and the facility to pick every PL AVER 

for every PLAY that you call throughout your five year career. 

Against you are coaches tike no other you have faced... some RUN on 4th & 1 ...others THROW bombs! but 
always THE RESULTS ARE REALISTIC. No matter how good you get, you will never be SURE of winning here. 

Each match takes about 1 hour to play (we said it was realistic) and every player gets tired during this time 
especially if you have OVERUSED him by not spreading the workload amongst your squad. 

At the end of each season, the name of the AmosBowl winner is inscribed on the plinth of the trophy.. .then, 

after the draft, you have a chance to do it again. Your CM takes care of (he draft for you as he probably knows 

the weaknesses better than you but a word of warning... beware of retirements and good opposition drafting 

for Season 5!! If you can win in this season you should be in the NFL. 

WHAT WE DONT HAVE... 
is BIG BOXES.. .MANUALS,,, etc 

just a policy of supplying you with a terrific game at just £9.75 inc. p&p and a policy of posting within 24 

hours of money clearance-

"- 



1991, the 




As little as 1 2 months ago the Amiga was 
still suffering from the ugly sister syn- 
drome as far as serious DTV was con- 
cerned. As a f«ull only a handful of professionals 
were jsing (he Amiga tor commercial video wort. 
Now that's all changed... 

Over the months our machine has cast off the 
chains of mediocrity and become an essential piece 
of hardware in both amateur and professional stu- 
dios alike. 

If you need proof, look no further than the 
Original Graphics Company, winners of this year's 
TV animation awards. They clinched the tine thanks 
to their stunning animation sequences which 
appear weekly on the children's TV series Motor 
Mouth. 

From now on, their award-winning creations will 
be coming straight from the heart of the Harlequin 
frame buffer, which as I'm sure you're aware is still 
the premier graphics board on the machine. 

Although the Harlequin's position is safe for the 
moment, it could soon be challenged by a whole 
bunch of new boards which will SOOfl be bidding 
for the top spot. 

Progressive Peripherals are soon to release their 
highly acclaimed Rembrandt card in the UK, 
Likewise, C2 will enter the race at any moment 
with their VD2Q20 Both of the above are 32-blt, 
cards as, of course, is the Harlequin. 

To combat the ever-growing number of con- 
tenders, ACS have just announced the Harlequin i , 
which boasts a whole range of extra goodies 
including four extra screen modes, colour cycling, 
full screen overlay and increased buffering from 
two to six. Unfortunately there's still no opUori for 
Irame grabbing. 

The multimedia explosion 

Second only to the impact of the 24-bit boards is 
the sudden proliferation of multimedia packages. 
At the forefront of these is the long awaited 
ShowMaker, which could be the answer to a DTV 
fan's dreams - especially if you're lucky enough to 
own a mountain of laserdiscs and various other 
high-end devices. 

Another must for videophiles interested in a bit 
of multimedia is the inimitable Scala, which even in 
its present form has revolutionised Amiga presenta- 
tion. Like Harlequin, Scala has recently gained a few 
opponents, primarily Presentation Master, which 



Read on as Paul Austin looks back at the year when the 
Amiga came of age and forward to the potential of '92 

If there's one thing that's regularly neglected by 
the average enthusiast, if as the output quality 
when your creations are recorded on to tape. It 
can't be stressed enough that if you're serious 
about quality you need an PAL encoder. 

Although if I possible to output direct from 
the good old modulator, the results are far from 
perfect. Unfortunately if you've never seen your 
creations at their best it's easy to carry on in bliss- 
ful ignorance. 

Those friendly folks at Third Coast 
Technologies can supply you with their CP-1 
encoder lor £149.99 or Syntronix systems can 
offer a whole range of encoders and other dis- 
play enhancers which will cure almost any vtdeo- 
graphic ailment. For details of the Editman 
systems, telephone 0339 29899. 




we reviewed in its Gamma form last month, bul 
which should arrive m its final form any day. 

Aside from a software invasion, the world of mul- 
timedia is also having its lair share of hardware, pri- 
ma rily in the form of multi-function Z4-bit boards 
such a; the IV-24. 

Cpnlor king, frame grabbing, picture in picture, 
Caligari, Scala and a paint package all in one bun- 
rile Not bad for a board retailing at under £1,800. 
Bul be warned, the attendant software isn't quite as 
big a bargain as it first appears, because a rather 
heavy-handed software surgeon has been at work 
on the nether regions of both Caligari and Scala. 

Editing made easy 

Apart from patiently waiting for inspiration, perhaps 
the most painful part of any video-based creation is 
the editing. Once again a mixture of hardware and 
software has came to the rescue in the form of dedi- 
cated rock and roll editing systems such as 
VideoPilol, KRP's Timecode Editing System and the 
Editman system from Syntronix. 

Thanks to these systems, the bad old days of 
stopwatches and Stanley knives are long gone. All 
you need now is a cheque book and a couple of 



I , * s«nn»- Is 

Copy ighie 1 441 SPARTXlnc,M Rights Rfts«r«m 



compatible VCRs and you're away. Both the KRP 
and VideoPilol systems are frame accural: 

employ their own designer timecodes which are 
written to the tape and read via the hardware/soft- 
ware combination in order to make the appropri- 
ate edits. 

The Editman system is something of a mystery 
as far as edit control is concerned as it doesn't use 
a timecode, but still manages an impressive accu- 
racy of +/- one frame, 

All three systems employ remote control in one 
form or another. They function via programmable 
remote controls, apart from the KRP system, which 
onfy works with S-VHS hardware and requires 
some internal installation within the VCRs them- 
selves. A point worth considering if you're still 
within your warranty. 

I hope to cover both the KRP and Editman sys- 
tems soon, so watch this space if you're in the mar- 
ket for easy editing. 

Well, that's about it for this month, Jf there are 
any aspects of DTP you'd like to see covered in this 
column, drop 
me a line and 
let me know. 
Until next 
month, bye for 
now... 



Although the high-end has blossomed., it's not only the power users who have benefited from the explo- 
sion. The once extortionate price of decent genlocks have also tumbled thanks to some cut-throat com- 
petition between the major suppliers. 

Now even those ol use in the cheap and cheerful league have access to near-broadcast quality equip- 
ment - and ail for the paluy figure of around £100. 

Once equipped with the hardware, all that's required is a copy of Dpainl for some essential artwork 
and perhaps a cheap tiller. Some prime examples are Alternative Image's Big Alternative Scrolber and 
Home Titter, which HB Marketing will happily supply. Both retal at under £50. 

If you're willing to wart, it could be worth holding on tor version two of the Alternative Image scroller 
which should be available at any moment and promises to have greatly enhanced effects plus smoother 
uroling.

PROGRAMMING 






Teaching the Amiga to si 




Get to grips with sound programming as Margaret Stanger continues her mini-series 



AH sound occurs in the form of oscilla- 
tions in Ihe air, or sound waves. On 
the Amiga the digital equivalent of a 
waveform is stored in memory as a series of digi- 
tised values or samples. This digitised data tan be 
converted back to analogue form and sent to the 
amplifier. 

The custom chip structure has four 
AudChannel structures. When they are written 
with parameters, the sound in the corresponding 
channel can be controlled. The sound change 
takes place when the corresponding bit in the 
DMA controller is enabled. 

The ac_vol structure member determines the 
volume, from a minimum of {silence) to a ma*, 
imum of 64 (loud)- The structure member 
*ac_ptr points to the start of trie sound samples, 
and acjen points tD their length in words. Last 
month's Programming altered these two values 
to vary the timbre of the note. This month we 
concentrate on ac_per, the sample pEriod r and 
its effect on the pitch of the sound. 

Now read on 

The frequency of the sound, or number of oscilla- 

Eions per second, determines whether the pitch 
sounds high or low. With each octave the fre- 
quency doubles - if middle C has a frequency of 
approximately 261 ,7Hz, the C above has a fre- 
quency of approximately 523.3Hz, 

far the mathematicians among you, the fre- 
quency of each half tone is greater than the pre- 
vious one by a factor of the twelfth root of two, A 
value of 440Hz for A was taken as the start for 
these calculations, so the values for most of the 
other notes contain rounding errors. The sam- 



This programming column Is the second In a mini-series on sound. The first part showed how to 
produce a sound by writing to the Amiga custom chips directly with a pointer to the chosen sound 
samples. I'll now demonstrate how to vary the pitch of the sound and produce a few musical notes. 
The Machine Code page of Almanac has been amalgamated with the Code Clinic page under 
the new title "Programming ". Some C source code and some assembler may be shown in the text. 
The support disk will contain full programs with both C and Assembler source code, fully docu- 
mented, as before. 




piing rate, or number of samples read per sec- 
ond, determines how often a sampie is sent to 
the digital/analogue converter. The frequency of 
the sound corresponds to the sampling rate 
divided by the number of samples per cycle. 

The DMA controller needs to know the num- 
ber of bus cycles between the output of two sam- 
ples - this is known as the sample period. It can 
be calculated by dividing the inverse of the sam- 
ple rate by the period of the bus cycle in seconds. 

The sample period for the notes from middle 
C to top C have been calculated (but not by me), 
and here they are from the Assembler source 
code: 

pcml: pfrisd ialucs c-c 1 
It.N til,m,si1,MD,JJ9,JJ|>,JM 
it.t EJ5,Z6Vit,2tC,ii6,2U 

Mathematicians who like equations - and hard 
work - could calculate the values using the equa- 
tions from page 1 ?S in the Amiga System 
Programmers' Guide. 

Hitting the high notes 

To select a tone from another octave, and get the 
optimal sound, the same period values are used. 

The sample values are selected from a list 
obtained for that partic- 
ular octave. The octave 
above would need half 
as many sound samples, 
the one below would 
need twice as many. 

Sound sample files 
obtained by using a 
dkjitiser on a real sound, 
or from PD disks which 
contain sound samples, 
usually contain data for 
three or four octaves. 

I have obtained higher 
octave data for the sine 
wave samples by only 
including one sample in 
two for the higher 
octave, and one sample 
in four for the highest 
octave. The sample 
length parameter 
{ac l en) also needs alter- 
ing when the octave is 
changed. 

When the end of the 



data is reached, one sound cycle has been per- 
formed, and an interrupt will occur. The Amiga 
will continue with more sound cyctes until the 
channel is disabled. In this program, each sound 
is turned off at the end of one second. 

The Amiga may be in the middle ol a sound 
cycle when this happens, and the sound will not 
turn off smoothly, The sound starts and ends 
smoothly only when the sound is at the begin- 
ning or end of a sound cycle, and the current 
sample is zero. 

The system softwa.re can detect the generated 
interrupt, and can be used to turn the sound 
channel off when the sound cycle is finished, or 
when the correct number of sound cycles has 
been completed The system can inform us 
when this has happened, and when there is no 
more sound qoeoeing up for the channel. 

This leaves the program free to concentrate 
on other things, and I will demonstrate this tech- 
nique in the next Programming. 



The program 



The two programs, sound2.a and sound2.c are 
almost identical - one (soundc2.c) is compiled 
from C source code, and the other (sound2.a) is 
assembled from assembler source code. 

Each program opens the DOS library and allo- 
cates chip memory for the sound data. The 
sound data is copied into chip memory, The 
sound channel DMA is disabled each time 
adjustments are made and the parameters for 
AudChannef[u] are altered. 

A sound is created based on the sine wave 
data, with a pitch of middle C. Similar sounds 
are made with the same samples, and each 
sound is pitched one semitone higher than the 
last one. A higher octave is produced using the 
same series of period values, but using the wave- 
form_oct2 samples. These samples are con- 
structed from the original by using only alternate 
samples. 

Samples for a third octave are created by only 
using one in four of the original samples. The 
program releases the memory, closes the library, 
and exits gracefully. 



COJV1INC SOOW; My next two Programming 
pages will involve sound channel control using 
a MessagePart, and simple musk. Both C and 
Assembler will be supported.

MUSIC 



Amiga music in '9 



The longest running story of the past year 
has to be the demise of the long-suffering 
sequencing package MusicX, Claims and 
counter-cfaims bounced across the Atlantic either 
proclaiming the continuing health of the Amiga's 
musical monarch or swearing that (he kkig was 
dead and the truth was being withheld from the 
people. 

In reality, the latter is more accurate. The 
Amiga's musical messiah has indeed bitten the big 
one. Even though Micro Illusions are keeping 
tight-lipped about its untimely end, it is official 
that the development team has been disbanded. 

As arty developer will tell you, once the support 
team are in the bin the software can't be far 
behind. The real shame about the MusicX story is 
that if supported by either modules or upgrades 
the package could stiH be ruling the roost, not by 
being the best, but simply via the huge- user base 
it captured in the early days. 

Pretenders to the throne 

As MusicX drew its final breath, the software vul- 
tures wasted no time in grasping their chance. At 
the forefront of the feeding frenzy were Zone 
Distribution, They wasted no time and went 
straight for the throat with their latest version 1,3 
ofKCS. 

Not content to pick the bone* of MusicX, 



The last year has been an interesting one for the 
Amiga. Paul Austin looks back at some of the highs 
and lows and glimpses at what awaits in 92 




they're offering across the board reductions on all 
of the Amiga's sequencing packages, defunct or 

otherwise, If you're willing to trade in an old ver- 
sions of KCS, MusicX, Sequencerl, 8ars and Pipes, 
Pro ?4 or in fact any serious package. Zone will 
give reductions that in certain cases reach triple fig- 



The new age 

While we wipe a tear in loving memory of pro- 
grams of the past, let's console ourselves with 

what's coming in the new year. The most notable 
forthcoming event has to be the imminent UK 
release of the new SunRise Industries sound card 
collection. 

Like Bars and Pipes Pro, the two Sunrise cards 
have been on the press release circuit for some 
time, but at last they've arrived in Europe, As a 
result you can rest assured that AC will bring you 
the definitive review as soon as the postman deliv- 
ers. 

The hardware tomes in either 1 2- or 16-bit for- 
mat, The 12-bit version ft aimed squarely at OTV, 
while its bigger brother takes on the big boys in 
the CD quality studio market, 

As you can imagine, even 16 megabytes of a 
fully configured A3000 doesn't go too far when 
you're dealing wfth hardware that can operate at 
rates of up to 1 OQkHz, As a result, all the informa- 
tion is written direct to hard disk and read back as 
the sample plays. 

Now we in the Amiga world can benefit from 



Rising stars 






The year started promisingly, thanks primarily to Gajits Music Software's release of Sequencerl . Although 
considerably underpowered in comparison to the likes of KCS and Bars and Pipes Pro, it did, and still 
does, fill a niche in the rnarket 

For those Amiga muses who want to get their creations onto disk without the fiddling arid complexity 
Of the power programs, it's ideal. Unfortunately, the initial promise of upgrades and further enhance- 
ments has not yet been honoured, even though version two of the software was promised before the 
end of the year. 

In defence of Gadjits, Ihey have released other products such as the latest version of The Hit Kit cam- 
position software which allows you to take the Lego approach to song construction', by bdlding entire 
songs from a variety of component parts. 

The original version was bundled with Sequencerl but no doubt due to its popularity, version two is 
now sold as a product in its own right, retailing at around £30. 

Their second, and latest, release is a series of high quality box set samples which give you access to 
the sounds ot high price synths which can then be used in any Soundlracker clone. 

As MusicX. suffered its lingering death. Bars and Pipes Pro had (he opposite problem. Although widely 
available in the States, its European releases has been rumoured and argued over for the last six months. 

At last it has finally arrived thanks to Zone Distribution, a company which is slowly beginning to domi- 
nate the Amiga music scene. For more details on B&P Pro catch the excellent review elsewhere in the 
mag, ptug...plug... 

Well, that's about it for this month. Next month's column will feature the Sunffise selection, plus all 
the news from the world of Amiga musk.

the sound quality that both the ST and Apple Mac 
have en|oyed for some time. Both boards come 
with their very own control software and, of course, 
are compatible with SMPTi timecode. 

The only worrying point is whether the boards 
will work with a stereo signal. Initial reports suggest 
that the 12-bit board is mono only. If this also 
applies to the 16-bit version, its studio potential 
may well be seriously impaired. 

A spokesmen from Sunrise assured me that both 
boards will be winging their way across the Atlantic 
within two weeks, so I should be able to give the 
answer to this question, and no doubt countless 
others, in the next issue of AC Watch this space.,.

Reading between the lines 



Last month I looked at the Fido mat! 
points, which is the most efficient way of 
handling large amounts of messages 
This month, because several of you asked about 
it, I'm investigating offline mail readers. 

OLfis allow you to use a BBS as normal for file 
up/downloading, but mail is received as a com- 
pressed packet to be digested offline. The next 
time you log on, you can upload your replies in 
one shot, without having to wander through alf 
the- mail areas., 

The main reason for using an OLR is time sav- 
ing. Cutting your online time not only saves you 
money, but il allows more users to access the 
BBS. Additionally, composing messages offline is 
considerably less stressful than hammering away 
as the phone bill tots up. Offline messages tend 
to be neat and, for the most part, intelligible. In 
short, OLRs are a good idea. 

This being real life, there is a snag. Not every 
bulletin board supports OLfts - most do these 
days. The main problem is that there are quite a 
few different file formats for mail packages, 
depending on the bulletin board. There are at 
least Tour different mail formats, and of course 
they are all incompatible , 

The board I use, Alb* Maxirmis (041-880 
7863, v22bis, 24 hours), supports several offline 
reader fife formats. Most importantly it will read 
and write the QWK Quick Mail format, which is 
supported by a couple of Amiga OLRs, Amiga- 
Reader and MessageView. 

Setting up an OLR is easy - it's meant to be, 
in order to encourage users to install them. After 
dearchiving the program to get it into a 
runnable state, you may have tD create a few 
directories and make a couple of Assigns, as 
noted in the documentation. 

You'll also have to dag out a selection of 
dearchiving tools, for some boards offer very 
few methods of archiving your mail. The most 
disastrous option is a board which only offers 
Zip archiving - the Amiga Zip program is very 



An offline mail reader can save you money and 
improve your image! Stewart C Russell is our man 
with the impeccably-constructed messages 



large and doesn't accept command line parame- 
ters. More enlightened boards - such as Alba 
Mawrnus - will offer Lharc or LHA archives, both 
of which can be handled by the excellent LZ 1 .92 
program from Jonathan Forbes, Steer clear of ARj 
- although it gives better compression than LHA, 
there is only a decompress routine lor it at time 
of writing. 

Now log on to your board in the usual way, 
and select the offline reader option from the 
main menu. The first session will take a while, 
since you have to tell the BBS the settings you 
intend to use. These include download protocol, 
archive method, and of course the mail areas you 
want to look at. 

After that, the mail program will wander off 
collecting your messages, and then will proceed 
to archive them. Here you hope that the machine 
at the other end is quite fast, since file compres- 
sion can be slow, Alba Maximus runs on a fairly 
nippy PC, so even LHA compression is done in 
seconds. 

Auto 2-Modem download (as featured in 
NComm and JR-Comm) is very useful here, as 
most mailers can be set to send the mail packet, 
then automatically logoff. Maybe it's just me, but 
I never feel happy leaving an auto-logoff session 
to its own devices, for I'm sure the download will 
fail, or somehow be re-routed via Chiguayante, 
Chile. 

The difficult bit's done. |ust point your OLR at 
the mail archive, and let it grind at it until some- 
thing sensible appears. Have a browse, reply to a 
tew with your favourite editor, create some mes- 
sages - take your time, enjoy modern automatic 
mail reading at its best. Once you're done, let the

program create and archive the mail reply 
packet, ready for your next call. The best place 
to look for OLRs is an Amiga-specific board, 
mainly because they lend to be better clued up 
on the Amiga r 5 needs than PC based systems, 

I tried both Amiga-fieader and MessageView - 
both were adequate, but Reader is small and dif- 
ficult, while MV is huge (over 200K!) and is lim- 
ited to two message areas in its evaluation 
release. Other readers for different systems 
include Bundle OLR and AmigaXRS, both very 
capable programs for their respective systems. 

Ask other users of your local board if they use 
an OLR - failing that, the sysop should know of 
one. If that doesn't turn one up, have a dig on 
Amiga Information (details later) or one of the 
other large boards. Failing that, you could 
always asit in the AMIGAJJK echo, where some- 
one will definitely know where to look. 



Rip off! 



To close, I thought I'd just mention something 
that made me mad. Not so long ago, an adver- 
tisement went round some of the UK. fido 
echoes for a SB 5 which has (and I quote) "...100 
MEGS OF FILES FOR T VOU* ... FULL MESSAGING 
FACILITIES FOR *VOU*". 

That's not unusual. What was strange and 
worrying was the phone number, which was 
phrased something like this: 08 3936 XX XX. 
Odd number that- bet you're wondering where 
that one is. Rearrange it, and you get OS J9 
36XXXX; that's right, a 36p/48p per minute 
"ntee little earner" line. 

What really flames me off is that the sysop 
was trying to make out that the board was espe- 
cially big, with wonderful messaging services. An 
100 meg file area is virtually de rigueur these 
days, and most boards support private Matrix 
mail at minimal cost. 

If you don't believe rrw, look up Nkk Lello's 
Amiga Information (0444-44130B, HST 24 
hours). Nick imports and exports files via the 
APS network, a global distribution system for 
Amiga BBS sysops Offline reading is supported 
(via Bundle2) and all the usual mail facilities are 
there. 

Nick and the rest of the sysop breed are the 
true salt of the earth, giving time and money for 
an exceptionally generous hobby. Don't let the 
money-grabbers corrupt the BBS spirit!

AMOS 



As you will recall, we have now gener- 
ated our maze and made a Pacinian 
travel around it with our joysticks - 
now it's time to introduce a nke ghostie to chase 
you, 

Some of the cade we will be looking at will be 
familiar to you, but there are subtle differences 
between the program we looked at in the fast 
issue and this, one. 

First we open our screens audi reserve our 
bank to store the maze data. Then we load in the 
sprites and Scons: 

(Merit Is B«rk t{),!4Q 

Sr.-ctn Cpm Q,iiQ,iDQ,1t,L0»'(!

CLs D 
Hidr Da 

I 

Laid "PA [ftM SFRiTEHBf 
UIS -n*2E_x70HS.ABK- 
Clt Itnn Films 

Note that most of the code is now in separate 

procedures. This is to keep matters a little clearer 
when explaining things. As you write your own 
programs you will find it much more efficient to 
break them down into smaller, more manageable 
parts.. This means that all of our variables must be 
declared as Global - if we do not do this, our 
procedures will not recognise them! 

The next step is to generate the maze and exe- 
cute the main loop. 



««_«*!! jl * Rtput ai i mtt 2 






Right, because we have changed: things a little, 
the program now checks the joystick and moves 
our Pacman by calling two procedures, 

eitCKJttCK II ■ BD.PACIAH 

Because our ghost is moving quite quickly we 
need to weight the odds in our favour a little. To 
do this we will use a variable counter called PASS. 
Every time the loop is executed we increment 
this variable, and when it reaches three we move 
the ghost. So for every three moves we could 
make, the ghost will make one: 

If PHSS-3 il » DD BHCE" 11 I End If It > Hi 
PUSS, 1,1 To 3 

Finally, we will check, to see if the ghost has hit 
the Pacman by comparing their co-ordinates. BX 
& BY are the ghoit'i position, X & V are the 
Pacman r s position in the nwe: 

KitUJIW ir.d ir-r. 
End 

The next procedure is the one which makes the 
ghost so hard to beat. Remember how a couple 
of issues ago we looked at baddie intelligence? 
This program uses exactly the same method and 
follows these rules: 



GHOST LEFT 



iHDET UP 



J] IF Him IS LEFT if GHOST THEN DOVE 

E-SE HC-VE EW5T H6-T 
2! IF PJKfllU IS attl GKDST THEN PDiE 

ILS£ Hrjl/E iHDIT tDWH 



Peter Hickman shows how to introduce 
meanies into your AMOS games 



Of course, if a wall is in the way the Pacman can- 
not move. You can easily overcome this by intro- 
ducing more complex rules. Remember - baddie 
intelligence is always governed by a set of rules, 
simple or complex: 

PrKidurt !-c ■: h :> i t

tWJT H)H 

End If 
End If 

lob l,1**8*,lt'BT,t. 
E-*d Prot 

The following procedures check to see if a wall is 
in the way before moving the ghost. Any value 
found in the maze bank other than eight is classi- 
fied as a wall. In more complex versions of the 
game you couid check for power pellets, bonus 
fruits, and so on:

CHECKJTICK looks at the value stored in ]OY(1), 
This contains a bitmap of the joystick position. If 
the value found is one it means that you are push- 
ing the joystick up, two means down:, four is left 
and eight is right. Just for reference, if the value or 
1 6 is found then you have pressed Fire on the joy- 
stick!

This procedure does exactly the same as the rou- 
tine we looked at last month. Basically it looks at 
the four directions surrounding the Pacman to 
discover if a wall is in the way. It stores this infor- 
mation in the global variabfes UP, DOWN, LEFT,

Well, that's it for now. Why don't you try to add a 
scoring system, or some more ghosts? 

Next time we'ii look at the program from 
scratch to see what we can translate into AMAL, 
the excellent sub-language which looms 
along...

More o 



Last month we dealt with the Tag Name 
and Paragraph sections of Professional 
Page's Define New Style Tag requester - 
this month well deal with the rest of it. 

We CM skip over the the gadgets for colour 
font and size because they are self -explanatory. 
The three line spacing buttons, however, need 
explanation. 

if you choose fixed line spacing, then the dis- 
tance you enter (in points) will be the space 
between the baselines of your text, no matter 
what the point size is. So rf you have tZpt text 
and specify six points of fixed line spacing, each 
line of text will overlay the line above it by six 
points, making it totally unreadable. To get two 
points of white space between each line you 
would have to enter 14 as your fixed line spacing 
distance. 

Relative line spacing is the best way to ensure 
that the space between lines of te«t is a large 
enough to make text of that point size readable. 
It defaults to 120 per cent, so if your text is in 
1 Opt thf space between baseli'iti h set to 1 2f.it. 
and if your text is 1 Spt the space between base- 
lines Is set to IBpt, In general, the larger the 
point size, the more space is required between 
lines for good readability, so relative line spacing 
automates this design decision. 

Leading is the amount of white space between 
the bottom of one line and the top of the line 
below it, in theory, a distance of zero points of 
leading - a technique known as "setting solid" - 
means that the descenders of the tine above will 
touch the ascenders of the line below. 

In practice, typefaces are generally designed 
with a small amount of white space below 
descenders so you can set your text solid and get 
away with rt - many newspapers do this because 
it gives the page a "busy" look. 

As suggested by the default relative line spac- 
ing figure, a leading distance of 20 per cent more 
than the point size of the text is generally the 
best distance for good readability - ISpt text 
with 1 pt of leading wilt look cramped and some- 
times cause readers to begin to read the same 
line twice, while tOpt text with Sptol leading will 





be too spaced out causing readers to pause at the 
end of every line while their eyes and brains 
travel to the beginning of the next, 

So the three line spacing buttons are just three 
different ways of doing the same thing. Choose 
whichever one you feel most comfortable with, 
and stick to it. 

In the middle of the requester is the Justify 
button. This has two settings - on or off. Ifs 
impossible to have no justification, so don't fall 
into the mistake of thinking that this is what "off" 
means, It doesn't. It means that thE style of justi- 
fication for the text will be copied from the text 
that directly precedes the text that is being 
tagged - no change in justification, in other 
words. If this confuses you, sknply switch justifi- 
cation on and click the style of your choice - that 
way no accidents can happen. 

Over to the right of the requester is a. column 
of eight buttons separated into two groups of 
m«i| four. The top two but- 
tons, Tracking and 
Baseline Shift, are simple 
on/off toggles and have 
associated string gad- 
gets into which you 
enter the amounts of 
each- 
Tracking is specified in 
hundredths of an em 
(one em is simply the

elements of your document 
■i upuatt itylt tags, 
global thwigr* c»n bv 
mad* quickly and eiiHy *t 
the dick erf a button or Iwo 



width of i lower case "m" in that font) and you 
can enter a negative number if you like - useful 
with large point sizes. Baseline Shift is entered in 
points - a positive number moves the baseline 
up, a negative number moves it down. 

As with the justify button, if Tracking and 
Baseline Shift are turned off then the settings are 
copied from those of the text directly preceding 
the tagged text. 

The next two buttons, Kerning and 
Hyphenation, have three settings - a black 
square in the button means it ii turned on, a 
cross through the square means it is turned oft, 
an empty white square means no change (that is, 
copy the settings from the text preceding the 
tagged text). 

Kerning is the feature whereby certain pairs of 
characters fit snugly together. For instance, in 
the character pair VA the left-hand upright of the 
A fits itself neatly into the space created by the 
right-hand upright of the V. 

On the whole kerning is deeply desirable and 
you should always have this switched an unless 
you have intrea.sed the tracking of some text, in 
which case trying to kern pairs of characters is 
pointless. On the other hand, hyphenation is not 
desirable - from a readability point of view, at 
least. 

The last tour buttons are text format toggles • 
on, oft and no change. I advise you to set them 
to exactly what you want, on or off in other 
words, otherwise you might find a bold or italic 
style being carried forward from the preceding 
text. 

Well, that just about wraps up Professional 
Page style tags. Spend some hours experiment- 
ing with all the features - from a design and time 
point of view, using them is really worthwhile.

MULTIMEDIA 



Art or pornography? 



? 



Mote CDTV add-ons are now available, 
Commodore are producing a black 
keyboard for CDTV (£49.95), a 

remote trackball (£69.95) with keypad and a 
cordless infra red mouse {£49.95). These should 
be available from all CDTV dealers by Che time 
you read this. 

Announced but not yet available are the new 
AVM (Advanced Video Mode) card and the hard 
disk options.. 

The AVM card ii a CDTV version of the DCTV 
{noi to be confused) add-on for the Amiga which 
gives 24-bit television quality graphics on the 
CDTV, The price has not been finalised, but is 
expected to be under £50. 

The hard disk options include the 20 to 
1 OOMb internal drives I reported on last month, 
and a standard SCSI interface card for external 
drives. These an only available to developers at 
the moment - I have one and it works very well - 
but, Commodore say they will probably be selling 
them to the public eventually. 

The CDTV will soon have more support in the 
authoring system department Authoring sys- 
tems, if you don't already know, are multimedia 
packages that allow people with little or no pro- 
gramming knowledge to puL together applica- 
tions for CDTV. This means faster, easier and 
eventually cheaper CDTV titles for everyone. 

Digital Vision, publishers of InfpChannel and 
the excellent Scala package have announced 
Scala for CDTV. This will allow people to produce 
simple CDTV applications very quickly, and if it is 
as easy to use as the original Scalar, everyone 
should be able to use it. 

Mandarin Software are producing a vera ion of 
AMOS for CDTV programmer*, While AMOS is a 



Jolyon Ralph rounds up the latest CDTV offerings, 
and reviews possibly the first over 18's disk 



programming language rather than an authoring 
system, it is so easy to use that many CDTV 
developers (including myself) are using it. With 
full support for CDTV features like 16-bit digital 
sound it will be excellent. 

Clem Chambers at On-Line Entertainment 
would also like id sell you an authoring system. 
His Desk Top Video system has already been used 
to produce most of his CDTV titles (including 
Women in Motion - reviewed below). A price of 
nearly £2,000 may put some of you off, though, 

Snoopy 

Snoopy - The Case o< the Missing Blanket Is out 
now fromThe Edge Interactive Media. This is a 
CDTV conversion of an original Amiga game. It is 
aimed at children from four years up, although I 
must admit I found it quite Ion. 

The object of the game is to move Snoopy 
BrOUrtd and find various objeCti that Will help him 
complete his task, which in this case is finding 
Linus' blanket, which has been lost. It is the usual 
sort of run around and collect things type of 
game, although 1 use the term "run" loosely, as 
Snoopy moves tediously slowly, 

I found it annoying, but my eight-year-old 
brother who was testing the garnE with me 
didn't mind it too much, The puzzles are not too 
difficult (although my brother did get so frus- 
trated that he threw the remote control across 




the room), but it is still fun. Overall we liked 
Snoopy. It's not brilliant, but it's quite fun. 

Women in Motion 

Next off the pile is the suspiciously named 
Women in Motion by On- Line Entertainment. If 
the name makes you think "hmrnmm" then 
you'll think doubly so when you hear that it was 
banned in Japan, So before you all write in to 
complain, I'll explain a bit more. 

At the end ol the 19th century, Eadweard 
Muybridge, art expert in photography, was 
asked by two rich horse enthusiasts to settle a 
bet on whether a galloping horse always had at 
least one foot on the ground, or whether it ever 
left the ground completely. With a string of cam- 
eras arranged along a rate track he proved that 
all four feet of a horse do leave the ground at the 
same time. With this he invented moving pho- 
tography and the cinema. 

During his later work he spent time pho- 
tographing nude women in motion (hmrtim,,,). 
His pioneering work in documenting human 
movement was vital to the work of animators 
like Walt Disney, and is a standard text far art 
students. 

Now, with all his work on CDTV, his pictures 
cart be viewed rrame-by-frame, or as an anima- 
tion. The Files are all stored as IFF pictures and 
anims which can be loaded into Deluxe Paint III 
or similar programs - assuming you can transfer 
the files from your CDTV to 
your Amiga. 

The user interface isn't 
brilliant - you have id move a 
mouse pointer around the 
screen with the remote con- 
trol keys. It's usable, but it 
could have been a lot better, 
and it seems to spend a large 
amount of time loading files. 

Ifs interesting to see titles 
like this on the market, No- 
doubt some people will buy 
the disk, for the women rather 
than the motion, but art stu- 
dents in particular will find 
this very useful.

MERMAIDS 
MCEG Virgin Vision (Oul January B) 
Meet Mrs Flax (Cher), an eccentric sin- 
gle parent who has a nasty habit of 
moving house every time a romantic 
affair doesn't work out. Say hello to 
Charlotte, Mrs Flax's eldest daughter 
who wants to become a nun (despite 
the family being lewish) and also to the 
nine-year-old Kate, the youngest of the 
family. 

Consider the calendar rather help- 
fully left in shot, 
proudly displaying the 
yeat 1963, Meet Lou 
Landsky (Bob 

HoskinsJ, the owner 
of a shoe shop, arid 
witness the blos- 
soming love affair 
between himself 
and Mrs flax 
(Still Cher). 

Mermaids as 
a film it fairly easy going. 
Very little happens, taking 105 minutes 
to do so,, and it isn't long before you 
start to wonder exactly what there is 
about this film that made it the box 
office smash that it was. 

While I gave Mermaids my lull atten- 
tion, it didn't seem to return the com- 
pliment, As a film ft's not intrinsically 
bad but ft certainly is not overtly enter- 
taining. For my part, I could see the 
smallest glimmer of something m 
Mermaids, but as a whole this is a film 
that comes perilously close to not being 
worth renting, reinforcing my beliefs 
that some films succeed more because 
of publicity inertia than anything else. 

SKI SCHOOL 
First Independent (Out NowJ 

It's true to say that there are only so 
many ideas under the sun, Therefore, 
when you get an idea that works, you 
roll with rt, Unless you're a Hollywood 
film producer, in which case you ffog 
the idea to death. Take Police Academy 
- six films with roughly the same plot. 





The producers of Police Academy pro- 
duced a film called Ski Patrol, which 
turned out lo be no more than one of 
the least unfunny Police Academy films 
set on a mountain. 

Enter Ski School, a remarkably similar 
film both in title and content. Just 
because s film isn't remotely original 
does not mean it isn't any good, 
though. Ski School is the traditional 
story of rival gangs at some form of 
educational establishment. One 
group is bad, nasty, evil and despica- 
ble and uses every dirty trick in the 
book. One group is good, incredibly 
hip and stylish, and by the end of the 
r film comes out best. 

Ski School is not the most original 
film that you'lf rent this month, but it 
has to be said that, unlike Ski Patrol, Ski 
School is very funny and is definitely 
worth watching. Lots of humour of the 
"Parker Lewis Can't Lose" variety, and 
some stunning photography and stunt 
action. Original it is not, but enjoyable 
and worth renting it most definitely is. 

PRAVEfiOFTHEROLLERBOVS 

First Independent (Out January 151 

It Is the future (again),,. America is in a 
state of ecological and financial col- 
lapse. Betrayed by the greed of their 
parents, the children of America fill the 
homeless camps to capacity. Jn this 
21st century Max Headroom-type sce- 
nario,, a powerful new force is emerg- 



ing. That force is the Rollerboys, a gang 
of violent thugs who blaze through the 
city on skatEs known as Rollerblades, 
Ruled by the inspiring Gary Lee 
{Christopher Collett), they are the force 
of the future, running protection and 
cfnjg rackets, with the goal of "buying 
back America". 

Two orphaned survivors of this soci- 
ety are Griffin (Corey Nairn) and his 
younger brother Miltie. When he dis- 
covers that Millie has been recruited 
and is selling and using the super-drug 
"Mist", he agrees to infiltrate the neo- 
fascist Rollerboys operation when 
approached by the police. 

With just one notable exception, I've 
always been very impressed with Corey 
Halm's movies, and Prayer of (he 
Rollerboys is no exception, it,, like the 
others too numerous to mention, is a 
top-notch wedge of entertainment for 
the youthful masses. 
I can confidently recommend this 



SEU-imw SATELLITE CINEMA 



film as one of this month's better rental 
releases - a good 90 minutes of enter- 
tainment. I doubt that there'll be many 
films released in [anuary to beat this 
and Ski School, 

n NINJAS 

MCEG Virgin Vision I Qui January ZZ) 

Someone tells you they're releasing a 
new video. 

"E*ceffent," you tell the company, 
"kindly forward one review copy of said 
video cassette in order that it may be 
reviewed by myself and the results pub- 
lished for the masses to consume." (Uh 
oh, Mr Logic afert! - Ed) The people on 
the phone consider your request, and 
the reply comes forth: "I'm sorry, there 
are no review copies of this title avail- 
able." 

Only two conclusions can be drawn 

from Virgin's failune to send anyone a 
copy of this video to review. Number 
one Is that the video contains vital 
coded information as to the where- 
abouts of the Spanish Armada. 

Number two is that possibly the 
video Is so earth-shattering ly bad that 
they're going to let the punters rent the 
film and find oul for themselves 
how naff it is, instead or letting a 
reviewer put them off renting it in the 
first place, 

9H Ninjas might be a very good film. 
But as no-one will let me see it, I can't 
tell you if it is. 

It couW be very naff indeed, and you 
might be advised to think twice before 
you rent it.

SHOCKER! 






v 



SENIOR management at leading com- 
puter magazine Amiga Computing, have 
confirmed exclusively io Rock Lobster 
thai a new editor has been appointed. 

Stevie Kennedy has laken over from 
Eddie McKendtick with immediate 

effeci. 

This shock move is thought m be the 
end result or a long running dispute 
between McKendrick and Amiga 
Comp&btg 'l letters editor E 7.ra Surt . 

A. jubilant Surf commented: "Eddie 
never really understood me, I have 
known Stevie for over three years and 
I'm sure he will do a good jtm." 

Kennedy. 26 was previously teclim- 
cal editor of the magazine and is 
Llicmghi to have i good imikrstanding of 

the Amiga. 
Other changes at Amiga Computing 

include the appointment of a new games 



editor and the promotion of 
Paul Austin to Associate 

Editor 

Daniel Whitehead, a con- 
firmed hit with Gamer read- 
ers, takes over from Julian 
Boardman who is leaving flw 
magazine to "pursue other mtcresis" at 
ST Action magazine. 

Newly appointed editor-in-chief, 
Eddie McKendriek commented: "1 don't 
know wfial all the fuss is ahout - any- 
body would think that Em Surf runs 
the magazines," 

As we go to press il is unclear what 
changes Kennedy's new broom will

'The Complete Colour Solution 

The Worlds ultimate creative leisure product tor your 
Amiga. Capture dynamic high resolution images into 
your Amiga in less than one second 

And Look No Filters 

Images can now be grabbed from either colour 
video camera, home VCR or in fact any still video 
source. The traditional method of holding three 
colour filters in front of your video camera is certainly 
a thing of Ihe past. Because Vidi splits the RGB 
colours electronically there are no focussing or 
movement problems experienced by some of our 
slower competitors- Lighting is also less of an issue 
as lighl is not being shut out by lens filters, Put all 
this together with an already proven Vidi- 
AmigaA/idiChrome combination and achieve what 
is probably the most consistant and accurate high 
quality 4096 colour images ever seen on the Amiga. 

The colour solution is fully compatible with all 
Amiga's from a standard A500 to ths ullimate A3G00. 
No additional RAM is required to get up and running. 

You will see from independent review 
comments lhat we are undoubtedly their first choice 
and that was before the complete solution was 
launched. If you have just purchased your Amiga 
and are not sure what to buy next, then just read 
the comments or send tor full review and demo disk.
